    Lovely photo, Rolf!

    I haven't seen one for ages, but don't have fatcake out as I'll be away from here on Wednesday morning, so I guess there's nothing to attract them. They will be too heavy for the sunflower hearts feeder I think!

    Have your Blackcaps called too?

    Yes, Catherine, saw a female a couple of days ago, but was heading out, so didn't have time for a photo, a couple of males were there a week or so ago.

    Keep a look out for Waxwings, you'll probably have some in your new area.

    Thanks Beryl, have had difficulties myself, as suffering with balance. At the moment there are Parrot Crossbills at College Town and I haven't been able to drive over and see them.
