Eastern Black Redstart (Holy Island)

This morning Dave and I decided to head north to Holy Island, Northumberland in order to try and connect with the Eastern Black Redstart, Phoenicurus ochruros phoenicuroides. We were not disappointed with stunning close up views of this mega rare bird. I'll look into the taxonomy of Black Restart in a future post but for now here are a few photos taken on my phone. I bumped into Andy Vinson and Tristan Reid so there will definitely be some much much better photos out there (hopefully I'll get one on my blog too).
