First Wheatear

Popped over to Norton Green after work. Conditions were pretty good, fine and sunny. Did not take all that long to locate the male Wheatear-birds have been passing through since Friday.
Unfortunately the two Black redstarts seen earlier in the day appear to have gone-I spent a while searching but bumped into an old acquaintance Stefan, from way back who had been up earlier and failed to find them.
Seem to be a lot of Green Woodpeckers at the moment, as well as Red Legged Partridge and Skylark. Seem to be a lot of Blackbirds too-unfortunately none with a white crescent!

Tuesday morning update-a pager message last night reported that both Black Redstarts were seen about ten minutes after I left in exactly the area we had been searching.
