Blackcap in the garden

I woke this morning to find a blanket of snow on the ground.
A sprinkling of the white stuff in the garden
My first thought was great that might bring a few birds into the garden looking for food and sure enough it did as a male Balckcap visited to feast on the apples I've planted in my Budleah.
I counted 18 Chaffinch, 12 Goldfinch, 6 Greenfinch, 4 Great Tit and 6 Blue Tit, a pair of Siskin along with 3 Blackbird, a Song Thrush , 2 Robin, a Dunnock, a Pied Wagtail, several Wood Pigeon and a couple of Collared Dove all taking advantage of my feeders along with the single Blackcap.
(Year list now at 137)
