Blackcap sex change?

Saturday 24 January 2015

The male Blackcap that has been gracing my Benson garden all winter so far seems to have morphed into a female. Strange to watch the behavior of the two sexes. The male was forever being chased out of the garden by the Robin but the female sees off Blue Tits and a Chaffinch and even had a go at a Starling. At one stage it had a face off with the Robin but certainly held its own.
