Common Redstarts

Again, a challenge for photography. It rained on and off but the birds did show between showers. This pair had a recently fledged brood of 3 who were around but very mobile. They vanished for short periods but a few times alerted us to their presence by calling in the undergrowth and sometimes came out into the open close to us. We watched the birds for a few hours over two days, each time keeping a respectable distance to avoid disturbing them as they went about collecting food for their youngsters. A real delight to watch :)
