Visiting Female Blackcap


Blue tit and female Blackcap

Last year we felt very privileged to have Blackcap visitors in the garden, and once again we have been delighted this week by the presence of a female. I wonder if there is a male waiting in the wings. What beautiful birds these are, and what fine bills they have. We have clocked up February and March sightings in previous years, but this is the earliest by a good few weeks.

Lovely photos and great garden sighting. We used to get winter blackcaps often in the past but haven't seen one now for some years! My callicarpa berries are going to waste!!!! Happy New Year to you both.

What a lovely bird to have visiting your garden, Caroline! Blackcaps have one of the most beautiful songs of all birds.
