Decided to get out the house today in the glorious sun and knowing I'll be spending the next 4 inside.
Explored a new area over some public footpaths near me with 3 target birds Ring Ouzel, Redstart and Wheatear.
After scanning many fields one came up trumps. First picked out a single male Wheatear, score!
Continuing to scan the field I managed to pick out another 7! Result!
Then a flash of red in the hedge behind the Wheatear, REDSTART. And a male at that, cracking. Turns out it was a county tick and my earliest ever Redstart.
Got sunburnt and walked far to much... worth it.
