I have been keeping a close eye on our new upright feeder to see which species are making the most of the food (fatballs and seeds) we are offering. We were thrilled today to find a female Blackcap. We both had our cameras at the ready, and took the photos you see behind our double-glazing. I see from my record that we had a Blackcap sighting in the garden in February 2020, so perhaps a pattern is beginning to form.
The list so far looks like this:
- Long-tailed tit
- Blue tit
- Great tit
- Wood pigeon
- Jay (seen and added 21 March 2021)
Happy St David's Day!
