Once again things have started to warm up here at St. Abb’s Head, but will it last this time? Summer migrants are continuing to arrive, with around 10 Blackcaps feeding amongst the Blackthorn blossoms by the Mire Dam yesterday. A summer visitor, freshly arrived from wintering grounds in Southern Europe and Northern Africa, only the male (pictured) has a black cap. The female looks very similar but with a red/orange cap. Lizy.
