Eastern black redstart

By oldgreyheron      
A very rare ("mega") visitor to the UK's shores - an eastern black redstart - has been hanging around in Skinningrove on the coast nearby for the last week. Many have been to see it - it hasn't been shy! I finally did my twitcher bit yesterday and today, and this afternoon I was lucky enough to get a brief close view of this delightful bird. It's a tick on my life list that will probably never be repeated!
