Rare eastern black redstart spotted in Gloucestershire

A rare bird - normally seen in Iran and Africa - has been spotted in Gloucestershire.

It is the first time the eastern black redstart has been seen in the county. The small bird was seen on Sunday at Tewkesbury Abbey.

Experts believe it may have been blown off course by eastern winds in the autumn.
