Revision can't stop birding! - Preston, Lancashire - 5th January 2011

This Blackcap is the first winter record of a male I think I have ever seen in my garden. We have seen a female about 3 times a winter in the last few years, but never a male. To my knowledge this is the 2nd (male) garden record.

With my imminent departure back to university, I am 'cramming' before my exams at the end of January. Recent sightings of Waxwings and Blackcap in my own garden are sufficient birding fixes to keep me from going insane!

Happy Birding!
