Well done with the Blackcap, Rowena

Great to have both the male and the female in the your local area.

I tend to keep the camera close to me at all times, as one never knows what will spring up next in the feeding area of the garden.

One year, during the winter months, we had a male Blackcap who happily sat in a bush eating white berries. He stuck about for a while before he disappeared.

Regards
Kathy

Whoops we posted at the same time Rowena

Love your photos of the Blackbirds and the Robin. Love your second picture of the Blackbirds expression. They are big characters to have close by anytime

Thank you for sharing your experience with us here

Love Robins they are very cute, and make their presence known - mealworms are their favourite snack
