Snow falling in Edinburgh and my first Blackcap of the year.

The snow has started to fall again in Edinburgh and there’s been another first for the year a Blackcap – there may have been 2 as one was feeding on some fatballs and another bird flew in and knocked it off, it all happened so fast I didn’t see if it was another blackcap. Remember if you have seen any Blackcaps during January the  is currently running. Also added Feral Pigeon to the list today, I would have thought it’d be one on the list for the year by now but due to the fact I’ve been stuck at home due to injury and it’s not overly common in our garden I hadn’t seen any!
