Black Red...

Gotta love Black Redstarts. Charismatic little birds and always a pleasure to see. When I lived in Chard I use to get one or two regularly passing through my neighbourhood every Winter but nowadays it's usually a trip to the Devon coast if you want to catch up with these beauties. Nine times out of ten you see the more drab coloured female/immature type bids (see photo in previous post) but this is a stunning male and definitely deserves more than a second glance:
