And another BLACK REDSTART (19 October)

19 October: And I just found a male BLACK REDSTART along Mill Lane to the west of Potton. It was in the Cypress hedge at the western end of the big winter rape field to the north of the track. Masses of Skylarks in this area, 2 Crossbills calling near the transmitter and masses of Redwings and Fieldfares in the tree nursery, along with a nice big mixed flock of Lesser Redpolls and Siskins. Two Corn Buntings in the field behind our house in Southill this morning (Paul Donald)
