A NORTHERN WHEATEAR located on wire fencing in field beside the weedy field (same place as last year). Saw it on the fence one moment dropped down & came up again, nice views. I then walked up the path to the other side of the hedge but only 20 yards to observe at a better angle and the bird disappeared. looked around everywhere.... nowhere to be seen. Field looks perfect for wheatears with short grass and cow pats everywhere.
Meanwhile the first-winter male COMMON REDSTART is still showing well in its usual hedgerow for its 4th day (Darin Stanley)
