Curious bird







I think it's a redwing. A pair of grey wagtails and a blackbird with a white head haunt the trees at the back of the fire station; a wren lives in the ivy that runs up the side of Centre North East, and last night I saw a goldcrest having a drink in the brook.
.
Lots of vole latrines about now, and prints on both sides going down from the east culvert down as far as the overhanging willow trees on the Tesco side.
.
The banks are still dreadully bare, though. I was watching a video I took last year in June, and the difference between the state of the vegetation then (lush as a jungle) and now is incredible.

You are correct it is a Redwing.
