Blackcap





























In January 2010 we had a male Blackcap visit the garden and he stayed for about 2 months before disappearing. He was a regular feeder in the garden but was quite shy and difficult to photograph. Last month sure enough a male Blackcap reappeared in the garden and is currently still with us. I do not know enough about these birds to state that it is the same Blackcap that has returned this year but it does seem a big coincidence. This year I have been luckier in capturing some images of this bird and I have posted some of the better ones here.

  6. Interestingly we have had the same occurrence here BUT this time he doesn't want to be photographed. In early Jan he had a female with him again but she either didn't stay or has succumbed to something!
