Oh! You (Red (start))led me….#1921

This Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros) chick took a breather on our garden furniture, much to the dismay of Mother who was chirping away and giving child a hurry-along.

Not surprising, considering the number of predators we have lurking around here….

Not up to Mr Lincoln’s standard, perhaps, but I’m still quite pleased with the result
