Black Redstart: Today I struck gold....black gold!

However the day started off really bad as I got fabulous views of a singing male right in front of me on the Corn Exchange building, but my camera was locked in the rspb van, one word GUTTED.

Later on I saw the bird on top of the Harvey Niks building and again on the Corn Exchange but only very briefly.

Its my mums birthday tomorrow and once again I was running late posting her a card, so I took a walk to Kings Street to find the post office when I was stopped in my tracks by the song of the Black Redstart (: and it was here I snapped some shots of it.
