Black Redstart, Hams Hall 28/02/2009
I nipped over to the Hams Hall distribution centre near to Coleshill in Warwickshire this morning, meeting up with John Hague and Bob Duckhouse. The intention being to fire of a few shots of the wintering Firecrest and Black Redstart in the area. Sadly, the Firecrest wasn't playing whilst I was there, but the Black Redstart was a superstar. Chats and thrushes are among my favourite passerines, and with the Black Redstart being so approachable I fired off 173 shots - the huge benefit of digital photography!
