All through the winter months we have been privileged  to have had a male Blackcap visiting the garden, taking a particular liking to a Camellia which has been flowering since Christmas. It has been feeding, presumably on insects, right inside the flower head. The other day he started  trying his vocal chords and I believed Spring was almost here!

Today he visited the fat balls and his face was covered in nectar....

Regretfully I have been out of action for the past few weeks but hopefully will soon be back on the trail as the migrants start pouring in!
