Black Redstart at Rainham

I returned to Rainham and struck lucky with both Male and Female Black Redstart. (180)
The male is a cracking bird with it's flaming red tail and while there I witnessed it working in partnership with a brown Rat to feed amongst the rocks on the foreshore from Ferry Lane. Also here was a Grey Wagtail which seemed to boss the Redstart and a Common Sandpiper dropped onto the foreshore briefly on two occasions.
