Black Redstart, Wash Northey

A regular visit to the area near the new foot/cycle Millenium Bridge over the Nene at Wash Northey, normally only good for the large winter thrush flocks that are sure to turn up something rarer one day. This time luck was in as two scarce migrants were present. The Black Redstart was using a small paddock and a Brambling was with a building finch flock nearby. I couldn't get a pic of the Brambling.

Female or immature Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros)
Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x eyepiece.
