First Black Redstarts of the year too - they were absent in October, when they normally arrive, so it's good to see them. Cracking male!

Yesterday evening I was sitting outside enjoying a glass of wine when I saw two Hawfinches fly into one of the neighbour's trees. Distant shot in poor light and very over processed but a nice garden tick.
