Black haired spirit of the wood.
There were plenty of blackcaps singing during that visit. Unfortunately they tended to stay in the shadows. I like its scientific name. Sylvia means "spirit of the wood" and atricapilla means "black haired".

Such beautiful birds these Sandeep and you've taken a fantastic picture of him in full song.

A cracking job my friend, thanks lad.

Post-op eye check at SpecSavers on Monday. Guessing I'll be needing new glasses! More money LOL
Hope it went well Delia:)

Pricey! I need two pairs of specs, one general purpose multifocals and the other reading glasses. With the large prism I can't get their usual BOGOF offer.
