After what looked to be an un-eventful start to Spring with regards to any Redstarts nesting on our local patch I was delighted to pop out this afternoon for a little walk and see a friend of mine watching a pair taking food to a nest hole, result!
The weather was terrible really, poor light, rain was heading in and only a small window to try and get some initial shots of the pair.
It’s a great nest site with plenty of branches surrounding the hole so photo opportunities look promising without having to upset the parents in any way.
In came the rain so the male shots were all pretty naff, which only left me with a few frames of the female amidst some heavy showers.
I did manage a nice one of her bringing some food to the nest and perching before entering the hole, so I was pleased.
