As you will know dear reader, Newton Marsh is a regular venue for me, well yesterday Friday 3 February (where's the year gone, what happened to January?) I drove down the access road to the United Utilities site at the end of the road. Simple reason for this post, I came across a Black Redstart hopping along the fenceposts and down onto the adjacent embankment – spooked by traffic it didn't stay in one place for long and was always too far off... anyhooo so you know I didn't make it up, here are a couple of record images to illustrate the fact (and annoyingly the sun was out... annoying in that I couldn't get a 'good' photo, then again any photo of a Black Redstart is a good one for me). Not great images but sufficient proof I hope. I should also mention the fact that the site was the venue for a local Car Rally on Friday and Saturday, so I am not hopeful it will remain for any length of time but you never know ... however I'll be back so watch this space.
