More Blackcaps

Light to heavy showers, 11º, variable in showers, WNW.

A couple of visits to Lollingdon hill today proved rather fruitless, Skylark and Corn Bunting in song and the only migrant was a Swallow that flew west, the only gulls seen were three Lesser Blackbacks.

Another Swallow over East End Farm today (per Bob Dryden, ta)

Four Blackcap in the garden today (3 & 1), now are these a mix of wintering birds or newly arrived summer visitors or a mix of both? At least one is a regular but a couple of others are not familiar with the feeders and are exhibiting different behaviours and some flycatching also seen during sunnier spells!
