Garden Blackcap Survey
With the public's help, we wanted to find out more about the behaviour of Blackcaps in winter gardens, focusing on three key questions:
- Which foods are Blackcaps eating?
- Are there equal numbers of male and female Blackcaps?
- Are Blackcaps aggressive with other similar-sized birds?
Find out more about these key questions and results.
