Moussier’s Redstart – 1994


The first of this species to be recorded in Britain was a male at Dinas Head on 24 April 1988 (M. Barrett, G.J. Walker et al.). It is normally confined to north-west Africa and regarded as dispersive rather than migratory, but has wandered as far as Malta and Italy, and one was shot at Heligoland, west Germany, in 1842 (Barrett 1992).
