Black Redstart

As with this season in previous years, we have had a brief visit from a rather rare bird, a BLACK REDSTART. (Last year, we also had an Eastern Black Redstart, which was really really rare.)

I wonder what else the camera will see this time round.

A close up.

The peregrines are still around. One (I am not sure which) was on the tower first thing this morning, and the female flew over the churchyard this afternoon.

A Great Tit

This time of year is always quiet for our Peregrines, and they have not been seen by the camera for many weeks. Judging by the number of feathers around the church yard, they are still around. Even the pigeons are rare visitors to the nesting tray, so it was nice to see this Great Tit making an appearance. This one is demonstrating where the phrase "a**e over tit" comes from!
