Black Redstart Leighton Buzzard Beds

A good photographer mate of mine in Leighton Buzzard Roy Mcdonald rang me up all a quiver on Thursday 2nd Feb 2018 to tell me that he was looking out of his window at a Black Redstart on his feeders in Leighton Buzzard. I couldn't get down early enough to catch up with the bird as it was starting to get dark. However a phone call this morning to tell me it was still there prompted an immediate visit and I enclose a few shots of this lovely male who was a bit bedragled with the weather, but none the less a stunning bird and a great find given how infrequently they visit the county these days.

Update the Black Redstart is still showing really well and has been on site now for well over 2 weeks, hopefully everybody has had a chance to pop down and have a gander at this stunning little visitor.
