Chiffchaff flycatching indoors

Chiffchaffs (gransanger) have been flycatching around the Buddleja bush and on the veranda over the last weeks  and I guess it was only a matter of time before one explored the rich pickings on the windows of the living room, also known as my indoors forest garden. This is the inviting view from the balcony looking into the living room with the door open:


Sat at my desk in the living room on the 18th September and suddenly a chiffchaff had joined me and was catching insects inside:



Biological control

This chiffchaff (gransanger) is doing its best to control the invasion of diamond back moths (kålmøll) larvae! On cress (karse) and radish (reddik) being grown for seed! I also observed house sparrows (gråspurv) feeding on them earlier today! I was cheering them on!
