Female Blackbird probing under plants in garden and recovering small slugs. Then spent a couple of minutes wiping each slug and beak on the patio stones. On first visit, carried small slugs around whilst searching for more; collected 3 before leaving. Visited several times more in afternoon, exploring same area and taking several slightly larger slugs away. Male bird was collecting bread crumbs and seeds at same time.
