Redstart, Ferry Meadows

Don Gardener struck again with yet another Redstart for the Peterborough area. This one is much more showy than other recent ones and, as an adult male, was much more photogenic. I managed a few hurried digiscope pics before trains and trainspotters caused it to retreat from where it fed along the railway line near the bridge over the Nene.

Common Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus)

Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x eyepiece.
