Over the border.Record breaker.

As most folk go to Aberystwyth at some point , it’s worth mentioning this old chap…the Black Redstart on the Old College @ Aber is OFFICIALLY the oldest Black Red …ever! Course they grow older , but it’s impossible to prove without a ring, so he is now recorded at 6+ years- reckon I saw him the year before , but who knows! Sadly , he’s injured his leg._DSC9888 copy_filtered

    Lovely image Kev. Hope the leg wasn’t damaged whilst the ring was put on!

    No Brian-he’s been sporting that for 6 years , whereas the injury is very recent.
