When news came out early morning that the BLACK REDSTART was still at shenstone i was very happy, and i was even hapyer when i was putting my scope down overlooking the area where the bird was, and luckilly, it didnt take it long for it to show.
It landed up on a small Birch?? tree moving away from its 'normal' area because of a the buzzard from the night before sitting on a post and on the ground there.
The bird flew to the far end of the Paddock into the top corner, and stayed here for the hour or so we were there, it didnt come closer, and didnt give much chance to get anything decent ) photo wise on it.

As already mentioned, the BUZZARD was still showing very well, but this time in very good light.
