Black Redstart, Pendle 16th April 2011

I took a visit to Pendle in search of the Black Red' reported earlier in the day
and found it perched on one of the stone walls beyond Pendleside Farm, easy!
It was feeding on the edge of the field and returning back to the wall as a perch.
The bird was quite tame and i got within fifteen yards without bothering it. Several Wheatears
also fed in the field.

With the Black Redstart "in the bag" so quickly, i had time to visit Upper Foulridge.
Not a great deal was to be seen, although a single House Martin was my first for
the year. A Great-Crested Grebe was showing well as were several Sand Martins
and Swallows on the wires.
