Friday 5th April middayish
Redstart . Beautiful, striking bird flew in to the trees near the footpath leading to the Bonne Terre from the hill going from Allee es Fees to Plate Saline. (sorry do not know the name of the road though I travel on it most days!)
I am pretty sure it was a Redstart not a Black Redstart as it was so brilliantly coloured.
It was a first for me though I have seen Black Redstarts before in Wales.
Hope someone else saw it or will do in the days to come. It was a real treat.
