Black Redstart Spring 2012

08th June 2012
A male Black Redstart has once again returned to its breeding grounds and is busy building a nest, however, it is once again in a very precarious location, they don't make it easy for themselves. I took these shots in between lashing rain and bright sunshine with a blustery wind, quite challenging. These are dogged little birds and it will be great if they can raise another crop of youngsters. I wish them the best of luck!
