Black Redstart Phoenicurus ochruros Millennium Bridge, Northey, Peterborough 6 November 2003
Another great find for stalwart local patch worker and PBC recorder Brian Stone. Click here to see Brian's own photos of the bird.
This female/1st winter bird performed brilliantly feeding from the posts and rails of the coral. It would flycatch or swoop to take insects from the ground. It later moved in to the nearby hawthorns where it continued to flycatch for insects.
