After much recent trudging around in iffy weather for scant few birding year ticks, it was a pleasure to get one this morning while I was gazing out of the window and eating a bacon sandwich. A handsome male blackcap spent several minutes in the garden, and seemed to have a twig in his beak. Hopefully this means there’s some nest building going on nearby, and blackcaps will be a regular garden visitor this summer. I’ve stocked up on insect-based food for the birdfeeder to help lure them in!
