Blackcap at Linacre- breeding confirmed!!

Just been on the website of the Sheffield Bird Study Group where there's a report of a male Blackcap visiting a nest with food. This is our first actual evidence of breeding, although its been presumed every year. Good record.

Also of note was a record of a juvenile Kingfisher, the first of this species this year. Kingfisher are usually reported in the summer months and I presume this individual will be a newly fledged bird from further down the valley. Again, great to see.
