Chiffchaff arrived on territory in the garden on the 30th March and today Blackcap singing. Now there has been a male Blackcap on and off through the latter part of the winter but last saw that about a week ago… so is this one the summer bird? It was singing from right at the top of our oak tree!
Blackbird (male), grumpy looking isn’t he?
Blackbirds have been sorting out their territories and carrying on most nights, their chucking lasting well into the dusk.
Dunnocks are very frisky at the moment too, with at least one male and two females. He is a busy boy just now.
Also singing are Robin, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Blue Tit.
