This afternoon I checked the valley leading down from the Res'r towards the golf course looking for any stray warblers!
I guess BS would have been doing 'passerines alley' today (bushes on the edge of the reservoir' ) with the same thing in mind...... Looking for Y B Warblers of course ! So I tried lower down the valley.

In one rowan tree full of berries was..
1 male Blackcap
8 Blackbirds
1 Song Thrush

Not much else other than a Green Woodpecker calling nearby and a Nuthatch.

A good spot with the Blackcap Dave.
I guess it is very late on to find Blackcap (mid(ish) October)?

Yes it's quite late John but they do, like Chiff-chaff, occasionally overwinter.
