Christ Church College, Oxford 21st January



1w/female Black Redstart at Christ Church College, Oxford this morning. Initially found on Saturday, after 3 subsequent visits with optics and camera was finally refound again this morning, feeding on the ivy on the wall of Christ Church. Bird is fairly elusive but occasionally shows very well, mainly on the exterior wall facing Christ Church Meadow. Bird also seen in the small trees around the gate into the Christ Church gardens, on the roof of the college, and on Saturday in the long corridor of trees leading away from Christ Church to the river.

Update
Still present on the exterior wall at 3pm, mainly hanging around the windowsills.
