Good Friday started bright but cold. The male black redstart continues to flit amongst the tombstones at Whitley Bay Cemetary, and occasionally I was in the right place at the right time. I do like black redstarts! Northumberland has had a bumper year so far, with many black reds' on the coast...

An early afternoon patrol of the Prestwick / Berwick Hill / Kirkley / Bellasis Bridge area did not reveal any sign of the white-tailed eagle, nor much else.

News of the Suffolk lesser kestrel aroused interest, but with no further sign at time of writing, the "tick mobile" remains parked on the drive-way and a quiet Saturday looms.

Superb shots - up to your usual standard. Brilliant. LEO showing very well at Arcot last night, of you want/need/chase a challenge.
