Black Redstarts in Westfield

30/10/15  The Redstart story continued. I recalled that there had been a posting on Westfield Wildlife website about a Redstart. I found it for October 2013. A Black Redstart had been seen on the roof of Westfield Church. I looked on the roof of our house & there was what I know now is a Black Redstart.

The bird was constantly catching flies & sometimes I could hear the snap of its bill as it caught an insect. The bird remained all day. It was still there as it got dark at 16.40.

31/10/15  The Black Redstart was again on the roof & this time there was a second bird.  Dave & Ralph from Westfield Wildlife kindly visited & confirmed the identity of the birds & to take photos.
