    Many thanks. As I am not very familiar with Black Redstart (having only seen a male Black Redstart once) could you say what determines this bird as a Black Redstart please ? Presumably it is a female ? Any assistance much appreciated. Dave.

    Getting Your Eye In- Rediscovering Rusty Skills

    John, Very readable as ever; thank you. Wife and I have just started going to what were regular birding sites a couple of years ago .... it certainly feels very strange indeed. And "rusty" is a very apt description of feelings. All the best, stay safe. Dave.
