Pole Cottage - Black Redstart

A chance morning call at Pole Cottage with Yvonne was the highlight of a cool blue sky morning. Matthew Webb had just found a male Black Redstart as we arrived to be the first on the scene!

What a stunning bird - as black as a Black Redstart can be!! Only problem was the birds habit of flitting all over the admittedly small site, often taking time to relocate.

I would have settled for this distant view through branches...






Until I had one golden opportunity to capture it briefly landing on a fence post in really good light! All angles....








But this was the one for me!!






A storming two days with the Barwit still present at VP - what's next in store????
