9th April 2021 – Stoke Park Estate, Bristol

I went back to Stoke Park with my godson to see if we could see the redstart. With his sharp eyes he had no problem picking it out. I could only see it when it perched on the wire but he was able to see it scrambling in the grass and on an adjacent tree. We also saw a chiffchaff nearby. All around Duchess Pond there were robins who were much more obliging in posing for us.
