Combe Martin Redstart

Tim Jones' Rillage Point Redstart (juv) was briefly beside the river on Combe Martin beach at 09.30, assumed at first to be a Black red.

Note from Tim Jones: Hi Jonathan, I think your sighting was too close to mine time-wise to be the same bird (my last sighting was around 09.20 to 09.25, but I don't think it moved very far). The habitat on the beach also sounds better for Black Redstart, as you suggest.
