"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

New Year Tick for the Garden

I was thrilled to see a female blackcap in the garden this morning - the first time I have seen the species in the garden this year.

She spent several minutes foraging around the pyracantha so perhaps there are a few berries left after all.

Well done, Caroline. Blackcap`s a species i always want too see in the garden, during the winter months.

Thanks Dean.

I am just hoping that the bird stays around for the winter and isn't just passing through. If I get more sightings I will try and take a photo - wrong lens on camera yesterday!
