A New Bird

Yes, indeed, a new visitor to the garden. I had noticed over the past few days a new bird splashing in the bird bath. It had a dark brown cap on its head and was pretty much sparrow size. I couldn’t find it in my books at a first glance. It was there again this evening, having a bath, flying to the fence then back for another splash, fence, splash, fence, splash. It finally left when a starling arrived. Then, after the starling, another bird turned up, this time with a black cap. A quick look through the book shows it to be a Blackcap. The male has a black cap and the female a red/brown cap. So there are at least two visiting the garden. They are summer visitors and are jolly welcome
