  9. Great shots of a bird I have not seem in a long while. Do they over-winter near you these days? When I lived in the UK that was just starting to happen.

    Hope all is well - Stewart M - Melbourne

  19. You did extremely well with these shots, Bob. It's difficult enough to find Blackcaps, and even harder to photograph them in my experience! Take great care and stay safe - - - Richard

  24. What a sweet little guy the blackcap is. I don’t know how you get those tiny birds to hold still long enough to get good pictures like these! You have the magic touch. Or a superpower!

  33. Hi Bob,
    Again some superb images of this delightful bird, a bird I must admit in not seeing for several years, the last time was at Rutland Water after an Osprey duty.
    You and yours stay safe and well
