Hi Alan,
As a one time Englishman who has been in Sydney for around 30 years, I had never seen a European Blackbird in Suburban Sydney until I moved to Penrith two years ago. I have a shrub in my garden with large berries, and have had 3 males and 7 females here at one time feeding. I  now have a pair who have apparently been breeding near here as they turned up with a couple of immature females recently.
I have also seen Blackbirds in several locations around Penrith and Emu Plains.
