Pleased to report that the Moorhen nest reported on 13th March has chicks in it. Didn't like to hang around to count or photograph them as with the temperature I don't think they would have lasted long outside the parents feathers. Last sighting of Blackcap was on Sunday 31 March - this was a female, the males not having been seen since about 27th. Still wouldn't surprise me if one or the other didn't return.
