On Tuesday I spent nearly 2 hours waiting for the Topsham Black Redstart to put in an appearance, which it didn't. This afternoon Simon & I went for a wander down to the beach at Sandy Bay. As we stepped onto the beach from the concrete slipway, a bird flew off from the rocks.....a Black Redstart! Matt Knott reported its presence a while back on his blog (http://gobirdingexmouth.blogspot.co.uk) but I'd failed to find it. As this bird's on my 'patch' it's even better than finding the Topsham Black Redstart!
