### Svarthätta - Sylvia atricapilla - Blackcap

The male is singing and he looks a bit peculiar below his bill. Something to do with sound maybe.

I had the pleasure of meeting with this couple a month ago. I rarely see them and especially both at the same time. The male was singing and made quite a display. The female was more shy and stayed high up in the birch.

This common Redshank was clearly seen and heard as we arrived at the location. From what we saw it was alone  but I think it might have a nest. It was clearly disturbed by our presence. Which was strange as this place is a place for camping and boating.

Finally life is thriving in the little pond. Now it is an exciting time to see how many couple will have young and how many will survive. Today I spotted three families of Horned Grebe and one family each of the two others. And a few gulls of course.
