Today Tuesday 1st November sees after a night of South East winds, the first Black Redstart of the autumn at Loop Head. Tony Mee has been on the peninsula for the past few days over the Bank Holiday weekend, but things have been dead. So far he managed to dig out three Merlin, a late staying Swallow (31/10/11), one Chiffchaff and now a Black Redstart. Little return for many hours of flogging the Loop. We feel your pain Tony.
