Black Redstart

I was in Cardiff today, so decided to head to Cardiff Bay, where a Black Redstart had been seen recently on rocks at the Penarth end of the Cardiff Bay Barrage. I found the bird easily enough, but it was not very approachable, and these were the best photos I could manage:

A Peregrine Falcon was soaring over the nearby cliffs for a while, but was too far away for any decent photos, as was the Slavonian Grebe I saw a little later further round the bay, just offshore from the ice rink.


  1. Lovely litle bird! I like the colors and the background in the last picture!
