Black Redstart

After a couple of weeks out of the game through illness, a local quarry near Potton (with no water) came up with the goods again for me this morning with an immaculate and very showy male Black Redstart, flitting around on a midden that the local farmer has very obligingly just put there. Not the Ring Ouzel I was hoping for, but there is plenty of time left for dross like that. ;-)

  1. nice ! I've been looking at likely spots on the hills but suspect with the cold and the wind, the paddocks etc of the lowlands would be a better bet as they may actually hold some food and shelter.
