  • Nice to get the Blackcap - I don't think I've seen a female Blackcap so far this year.

  • In reply to HAZY:

    Lovely to see the female Blackcap having a good bath Hazy, also good to see Mrs. B collecting a mouthful of mealies for her brood, very few blackbirds in my garden this year.

    Lot to learn

  • Nice to see the Wood pigeon eating the Ivy berries this afternoon, only seldom get one in my garden
