Black Redstart : Penarth Marina

Not done a lot or posted anything for a while what with the Six Nations rugby on weekends and carrying out some decorating at home so only a few shots of a fine wintering male Black Redstart at Plas Taliesin on Penarth Marina taken during a search a few weeks ago for the two juvenile Glaucous Gulls at Cardiff Bay.
Managed to find the pale one of the two birds but it was too far away on the port authority building roof for any photographs........

Unfortunately the redstart didn't play ball and stayed up on the roofs for the time I spent trying to photograph it, only once did it drop briefly on to one of the low walls and that was only for about 5 seconds.
