Black Redstart

There has been a cracking Black Redstart hanging around the harbour over the last few days. I eventually caught up with it on Sunday and again today, and it up on a really good show too.

I meet up with Gary who had spotted it on my garage roof at the harbour and then it eventually moved to the little pier before flying off to the middle pier and this is where it showed really well.

Myself and Gary spent about half an hour watching it fly back and forth feeding on flies and it was not bothered about us at all. I'm sure it was just putting a show on for us and at times we could not even focus our camera's as it was that close.

I did manage to get a few pictures and hopefully it will hang around for a while.
