Male Blackcap & lunch at Filby
Male Blackcap seen and heard perched 12 foot up in a bush just a metre away from the back fence at 7.05am this morning (Wednesday 24th April), first record of a male of this species seen just outside the garden. Lunchtime at Filby Broad today, I initially saw 2 very vocal Marsh Tits chasing each other in the tall tree by the car park they chased each other flying first west then east to tall trees bordering the car park. Looking over the broad, 2 Common Terns seen on a floating platform, they later flew around the north- western section of the Broad, whilst 3 Goldeneye (2 males and a female) were at the back of the Broad.
