Blackcaps: a new winter visitor to our gardens | Life and style | guardian.co.uk

The number of blackcaps visiting our feeders in winter has increased fourfold since the 1970s, according to the British Trust for Ornithology. This may not appear to be interesting news – birds adapt all the time and the last 10 years has seen an increase in the number of goldfinches, long-tailed tits and, more recently, bullfinches visiting our gardens to take advantage of the food we put out for them. But blackcaps are supposed to be in Spain at this time of year.
