  1. sorry to be a pedant but it's "Christ Church" ( not Christchurch, nor Christchurch college.......

    1. Thanks for the clarification, I've been adding 'college' for the last week!

    1. Couldn’t see it between 12-1:00 I’ll try again tomorrow, any tips?

    2. Hi Trevor, thanks for the update.
      The Black Redstart was fairly obvious when it was there and although it did dissappear, it wasn't much more than 5-10 minutes so I suspect it may have moved on if you didn't see it in the hour you where there.
