Bay Watch 04/06 - starring Black Redstart

Today I walked to Holywell Dene via the waggonway and then across to the coast and back along the beach, picking up 44 species. The highlight was a fabulous male Black Redstart by the Delaval Arms pub.

Throughout the dene the birds were busy feeding young, many of which have now fledged.

Long-tailed Tit

Great Tit

Flocks of young Starlings were feeding at St Mary's

Brown Trout in the dene

Foal at Brierdene Farm

Copter over St Mary's (a birder perhaps?)


  1. Bringing us some nice images Tim.
    How are you and the 7D getting along.

  2. That's a colourful backdrop to the BlackRed, nice find.
