to Croxley Moor where Joan Thomson,Lee Evans,John Edwards,Geoff and I were hunting the elusive
Common Redstart,eventually 3 Wheatear obliged ,although Lee was pissed off they were Iceland not
Olds Approach when Geoff found the male Redstart in a gorse bush,a good view of this stonking

and the bird.
