Black capped Blackcap ........

At the reserve we have numerous Blackcap territories, last winter at least one was occupied throughout the year.

The black '' skull cap '' of the male perfectly sets off the silvery / beige colours of the remainder of its upper and lower parts creating a stunning visual impact.

For a Warbler it can be quite brave and tolerant of humans particularly when displaying.

For me It is a pleasure to get opportunity  to photograph this species, particularly the male. 

                       Having said that the female of the species is not without her charms.
