Is this a blackcap? I live in Pretson. There were few of them flitting through the trees and there was a beautiful song
my photos can be seen here flickr
Looks like a male Blackcap to me, I get several pairs visit my garden.
I have never seen one before! thank you Maria
Its a very good bird to identify the male and females, the females have a brown cap! Apparently the ones I have had in the garden all winter are European and may be going back. Hopefully I will get some British ones in their place :-)
As Maria says the female has a brown cap. Just so you know what to look out for here's a photo.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. (Chinese proverb)
One of the most beautiful songsters there is! :-)
