Now is the Time. Apples are the Food.
First: Have a look at the latest Tour Report
Every year in January a Blackcap appears in the garden. For the last 2 days there have been 2, a male and a female. A little bonus as Tormod and I do some planning and rescheduling. Meanwhile Tormod is still glowing after his first Red Grouse. Have a look at his lovely photo of a female taken yesterday. They are easy enough in the greater Sheffield area, but nevertheless we had some very cool views in the snow.
The LROS ‘Pushing the Boundaries’ meeting at Rutland water has been rescheduled to Saturday Feb. 2. Apologies to all those who hoped to be there. More info to come.
For now we are in Norfolk for the weekend and in the morning will be joined by Yoav Perlman and hopefully later Tristan R and Chris. Will we reach 100 species in North Norfolk by Sunday night?
Blackcaps from Sheffield Garden today:
How many winter in Britain? It must in the order of 100’s or into early 1000’s??Maybe the BTO Blackcap Garden Survey will tell us more.
