Hope so John.

We have had Blackcaps in our garden over the last few winters, they seem to be residents now.
I seem to remember as a kid these arriving in Spring, along with other migrants, i know this was a long time ago. Image
Does anyone else see these in winter or any other birds that used to be classed as migrants?

Cheers--Den
