Blackcap - King of the garden

Saturday 15 December 2012

Most winters I get at least one Blackcap in the garden but I have never had one that behaved like this year's tenant.  It will not let Dunnocks, Chaffinches, Blue or Great Tits or Goldfinches anywhere near the feeders. It even chased off a Reed Bunting the other day and seems evenly matched with the resident Robin. We had a rare visit from a Great Spot and the Blackcap was very agitated but decided that discretion was the better part of valour when he say the beak of the woodpecker.
