Wintering Blackcaps

 A dull, wet, cold, miserable day - lit up by this little visitor: a blackcap flitting around the dogwood in our garden. It appears that these birds have changed their wintering habits: normally, blackcaps head south for the winter, some northern ones staying in southern parts of the UK. But recent records show that summer birds in Germany are heading north and west to the UK to winter! A sign of the global warming I suspect.
