Black redstart

A very handsome creature

A very handsome creature

I’m pretty sure it’s a black redstart and not a common redstart that’s been flirting and flicking about all over the courtyard for days.

Except it ought to be a robin, sitting on a postbox like that.

Out of a whole string of camera shots from the window, this was the only one vaguely in focus.

PS  I’ve now replaced the photo with a better one. The bird obligingly presented itself in profile and stayed still a microsecond longer!
