I have been extremely busy the last few weeks juggling myself between family and work so have not been out birding too much of late. While leaving work this morning during a heavy shower of rain and strong winds I heard a wonderful male Black Redstart calling from above. He was sat on top of the hangar and did not seem too perturbed by the awful weather. I have observed Black Redstart at Heathrow Airport every year since 1987 where they breed and seem to be doing very well.
This afternoon while out driving past the Aquadrome in Rickmansworth I discovered a pair of Canada Goose with at least 2 goslings feeding on the verge and later at Woodoaks Farm 5 Greylag Goose grazed the pasture.
