my blackcaps are now gone with the female last seen on 25th and the male in the first week of march. had a max of 3 in the garden in feb (at least 5 in the local area) but being very food aggressive birds there was normally just one at a time.

Water pipit still at west rise, 3 little egrets new in, naff all migrant passerines. Quiet now the winter birds are gone and the summer birds are yet to arrive. There was a conspicuous westerly movement of immature black-headed gulls in flocks of up to 150, something I normally associate with May
