The late Amy Winehouse’s father said he is visited by his daughter’s spirit.

Mitch Winehouse told The Sun that he had always hoped he would see his daughter again after her death in 2011 — and he does, “not physically, but spiritually.”

“Her spirit comes and sits on the end of my bed. She just sits there and it looks just like her with her beautiful face and she looks at me,” he told The Sun. “I say to her, ‘Are you all right?’ because I get ­nervous with her being there. But it is comforting in a way to know she is here and around me.”

Mitch Winehouse said the “Back to Black” singer appears more frequently around her Sept. 14 birthday.

He added that Amy visits him and his wife, Jane, in the form of a black bird, similar to the one their late daughter had tattooed on her arm.

“The week after she died I was at my ­sister’s house, and we heard this thud and a blackbird that looked identical to Amy’s tattoo flew into the glass,” he recalled to The Sun.

“We went and picked it up and put it up on a perch. It happened at night, when birds don’t fly, but it came back and sat on my foot,” he continued.

“And then we put it back again and it came and sat in the middle of us and sang. I do now see blackbirds all the time. And you think, ‘Oh, it’s only a bird,’ but it’s her, I’m sure of it.”

Mitch founded the Amy Winehouse Foundation on what would have been her 28th birthday — Sept. 14, 2012.

The foundation is dedicated to “preventing the effects of drug and alcohol misused on young people,” according to the organization.
