Redstart

redstartThis beautiful little bird is a Redstart, a passing visitor to Skomer in the migration periods but not a particularly common one.  Which is a shame because they are quite pretty and flit round the grey rocks bringing a little flash of colour before the flowers have had a chance to get going.  So far we have had a couple of females like the one in the picture and just one male bird, but hopefully we’ll have a few more before the year is out!
