Once again confined to living room birding, there has been some excitement this week, with a first Blackcap of the year visiting. A very nice looking female has spent a few days now scurrying around the various hedges and has even taken to having a nibble at a fat block. This bird was a day earlier than the first Blackcap I saw last year. So this makes me think that it may be a fresh in migrant.
More excitement when the male Bullfinch decided to put on a show for me, with the female that I presume is the same as the one I saw last week. I could hear it's call while I was sat in the window and then it flew straight across from my eyeline. A real treat.
Also this week, has seen a pair of Robins gathering nesting material and taking this to the bush outside my kitchen window. I have everything crossed that I get a group of youngsters in the months to come.

Well, there he was! And the robin. Two of the favorite birds, so difficult to "catch". I am trying...ReplyDelete

We don't have bullfinches here - more's the pity, because they're beautiful!ReplyDelete

Hello,:=) Lovely collection of bird photos. The Bullfinch is a beauty, and The Robin captures are very pleasing. We have both a Black cap and a Robin nesting in our garden, and are looking forward to seeing and photographing the chicks, ...hope you capture them also.ReplyDelete
it is fun to birdwatch from the living room.
I see that you have a bullfinch in the garden but also a blackhead. Really great to meet these in your own garden :-)
