    The female Blackcap that has been with us daily since 29 December hasn’t been seen for the past two days. Hopefully, this is not connected to the Sparrowhawk seen having breakfast two days ago. Strangely there is no evidence of any pluckings.

    Ed. see Peter’s Sparrowhawk photo in our gallery

    Song Thrush back again today, singing away.
    Coal, Great, Blue and Long-tailed Tits on feeders, also about 10 House Sparrows.
    Only recently put feeders back up because it was attracting rats before.
