User / Steve Balcombe / Black redstart m with caterpillar #2
Steve Balcombe / 3,162 items
The black redstart disappeared behind a boulder for a minute or two, and we wondered what he was up to but didn't want to walk round for fear of spooking him. I'm so glad we didn't disturb him, because eventually he emerged with a good-sized caterpillar! He shook it around and bashed it on the ground quite a bit but my only sharp shots are from when he paused for a moment.

I'm hoping to ID the caterpillar at some point - maybe when I get the new book which is published next month: www.nhbs.com/field-guide-to-the-caterpillars-of-great-bri...
