Topping the list of near misses was a pair of Blackcaps. The female made a few return visits during the month on one occasion briefly making use of the feeder. This was the first sighting of Blackcaps this Winter.
Oddity of the month though was the fleeting glimpse of a magnificent male Pheasant. Unlike the female which seemed to take up residence for a few days last October, we have seen no more of the male.
