Blackcap Returns . . .
We have had a female Blackcap in the garden for the last few days, feasting on apples and oranges we have stuck on canes and guarding it's garden territory and food aggressively. We had a female Blackcap over wintering in the garden last year . . .wonder if it's the same one?! Two Song Thrush have also spent lengthy periods feeding in the garden, an unusual sight here and one of many different behavioural changes in the birding world we have noticed during this prolonged cold, snowy snap in our Suffolk patch.

Otter on Ice . . .
A superb sight caught my eye along the Deben Estuary today towards Martlesham Creek- an Otter came marching out of the reeds & padded out over a frozen pond in full view, allowing me to grab a few record shots! A beautiful, large animal & a pleasure to see along this part of the Suffolk coast . There were lots of Wigeon & Teal in the Creek at low tide, along with a Green Sandpiper, Sparrowhawk, Redwing & Fieldfare overhead & several Cetti's Warblers in the reedbed area.
