Notes on birds & wildlife from an east coast birder, wildlife enthusiast & photographer
Thursday, 25 March 2010
There were still up to 3 Black Redstarts on or just east of the Oval early yesterday (Wednesday 24th March) morning, including the stunning male and 2 females. They favoured the dilapidated wooden fence running just east of the Oval. We (Richard W) & I were even able to listen to the wonderful gravelly song of the male as he sang up the top of a building within the Oval. 3 Wheatear (2 males and 1 female) were still on the Oval aand the North Denes just north of the Oval although less confiding than the Redstarts.
Also today a female Blackbird is building a nest rigght outside the kitchen window in shrub neearby and she is making rergular return sorties with nesting material.
