New Sighting


Me and Ruth work on repairing the Decking form lunch, finished around 5 and went for a walk to chill. All of a sudden i heard a bird song that i didnt recognise. Then it appeared a short distance away, my first Redsart it was a male but the Female came in to, i panicked as camera started to hunt so i had to remove the Camo cover so i could manual focus. I managed to get the Male so i am really happy as its another one ticked off in my book

.Redstarts are immediately identifiable by their bright orange-red tails, which they often quiver. Breeding males look smart, with slate grey upper parts, black faces and wings, and an orange rump and chest. Females and young are duller. Redstarts ‘bob’ in a very robin-like manner, but spend little time at ground level. It is included on the Amber List as species with unfavourable conservation status in Europe where it is declining.B72A5015
