Speaking of new… The other day I spotted a new bird in our garden, and shortly after I could confirm that a new voice had been added to the chorus of spring-mad birds.
It’s a blackcap, and I must say its song is really something! The strong, flute-like tones are reminiscent of the blackbird’s, but it’s got the speed and variety of a robin. Powerful! And beautiful!
Cheeky bugger, eh?
