I love those redstarts to bits! Not many around here and the one resident couple hasn't returned to our "garden" :-(
The black variety I've only ever seen around our school building (some serious trees and greens there - in contrast
to our flat :O^ ) but no photo as my smartphone is a hoot and obviously I don't carry my camera around O**

Well done, Lis O/\

This morning I saw a male black redstart sitting on the gate. They are beautiful O/\ O/\

Brilliant O:V

I had a red kite just above our roof today... but in contrast to you, Flutts, I didn't have the wits to get my cam / phone out to take a proof shot. 0*\

The black redstarts have repaired the nest and are now feeding the new chicks

Bad light and they are very fearful
