Back For Black

Just had a montage of photos from Janet Baxter, taken yesterday, that confirm that the ringed male Black Redstart on the Old College in Aberystwyth is the same bird that Paul and I caught there on the 5th December 2010 (the only Black Redstart ringed in Wales that year). It is very nice to be able to confirm that these infrequent winter visitors may return to the same wintering sites in subsequent years. Just need to find out where it's nesting now! Many thanks to Janet for use of the photo.
