Redwing: Two birds also feeding on Ivy berries.

Sparrowhawk: one male displaying over Queen Mary’s Gardens just after the rain had stopped.

Willow Warbler: One still in area 26, but singing quietly.

Chiffchaff: Five birds singing.

Blackcap: Males singing in areas 14 and 29.

The photos (below) of the same Chiffchaff show how sunlight makes all the difference to its appearance.
