Brown Blackcap

Unlike the black ‘cap’ of the male Blackcap, the female actually has a brown cap, which makes it pretty easy to tell them apart. According to the RSPB, they eat berries and insects – this particular bird seemed to be trying to catch some flies on the wing, before heading over to the Berberis bush.

I’m not sure the blackbird would be too eager to share the Berberis berries, but this little blackcap made sure she staked her claim on the garden – when she spotted us standing in the garden, she started shouting until we went back indoors!
