My last record of them was in March 2014. I do a weekly BTO Garden Birdwatch which helps the BTO and myself to keep a track of what is present in my garden and locally.
A Sparrowhawk visit shortly afterwards did not go unnoticed by me as I watched it fly swiftly in to the garden and promptly perch in an apple tree! A female Bullfinch on a feeder was oblivious as she stayed feeding whilst the male Bullfinch fled in to conifer trees and was well hidden! The Sparrowhawk soon left the garden without prey!
I have this Winter missed seeing a Blackcap in my garden. Up until now this is the first Winter without a record of them. There is still time I suppose.
