An after work dash up to the bird hotspot of Central Milton Keynes tonight.
Simon Nicholls had discovered a female type Black Redstart along with 2 Wheatears first thing this morning and with Paul giving me updates through the day, I thought I should go for it.
Arriving on site there was no sign. In fact the only bird seen was a Stock Dove.
I was speaking on the phone to Paul to bemoan my luck, when a bird flew in from the rough grassand and landed by the big red metal crate. This was indeed the bird I was here for.
Once I had found it the Redstart showed very well, for quite some time feeding around the metalwork that was littered around the building site.
A very good Bucks bird.
