Michael has been out with his camera again.  This time he didn't have to go very far from home.

He has a covered terrace which runs the length of his house and is open on three sides. A redstart has built a nest in the eaves and has been busy bringing up the new family.

Michael was able to watch the father, regularly, fly out and then return with some food and, as a result, was able to capture these stunning photos.

Redstarts are generally on the decline in Europe now and numbers in the UK are dramatically reduced.  For more information on this beautiful bird take a look at:
