Blackcap


Blackcap
 
We are extremely fortunate here in Belle Vue Road to have wonderful neighbours, and a couple weeks ago Neil, who lives opposite, mentioned that a couple of blackcaps had been visiting a tree in his front garden. This bugged me a little because I haven't seen or heard a blackcap in ages, and our living room looks directly on to Neil's tree. I've been keeping an eye on the tree each day and finally, this morning I caught up with the male while I was getting ready to take Joel to football. Otherwise it has been a busy and pretty birdless day, but I did a quick check on the Sandy Bay black redstart and I'm pleased to report it's still there, though I haven't seen the sailing club bird for a couple weeks now.
