|One of the Black Redstarts. A cracking male.|
I'd got round to the path that goes down towards the holiday camp and the wood, when I got a text from Paul. Well, this elicited a quick about turn and saw me walking at pace to get back to the car. And so, it was off to Portland, which is certainly on a roll at the moment, for a bird that I have been waiting to see for years. I wasn't to be disappointed.

|A beautiful bird.|
Well done to the finders and thanks to them and Paul for getting me onto this wonderful bird. My personal highlight of the year locally.
