Who's been stealing my blackcurrants?

My black currants are starting to look juicy, but seem to have been disappearing.   There has been a lot of purple bird poo on the patio too in the last few days, suggesting the thieves may have wings.

With the help of a small radar (a RAT-150, one of our latest products being developed ...) I managed to catch one of the varmints in the act.

Not content with just eating up the fallen berries, this blackbird was attempting to snatch them in flight!
