Black Redstart

After a pitifully poor record of spotting migratory spring birds on Symi this year it comes as a relief to find this  colourful resident male black redstart. There were a few eagles earlier passing through and a brief glimpse of some bee eaters and the usual mass of hirundines but very little else. I imagine it's to do with the odd weather patterns recorded this year.
