About Time!

At last! On my third visit of the morning to the yacht club, I finally caught up with the Black Redstart that has been in the area since before Christmas. Instead of me having to traipse around the whole place it just popped up right in front of me as I parked the car. I wasn't quick enough to get a shot from the car but it didn't move too far away.... Well, at first! It's a very flighty individual and it soon made off towards the houses on the other side of the river before totally vanishing. I only got three shots. They're not usually so difficult. Still it's safely on the list now.

Nice one, Karen. We have a different redstart that winters here. I love to watch them as they twitch their tails around.
