Black Redstart ~ Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth

The reported male Black Redstart showed well (once it turned up) at Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth late this morning, feeding in the area above the chapels. Possibly a second bird tucked in the holly both birds could be heard calling but the second bird other than moving between tree cover stayed out of view.

Several Redwing, Song Thrush and numerous Blackbirds feeding on holly berries.

Shame that some of the visiting birders/photographers have no respect for graves and headstones, if the behaviour I saw today continues I would not be surprised if the cemetery authorities said that bird watchers are no longer to be welcomed on site.
