The Redstarts

After reading about the Redstarts that were showing well at Welby near Melton Mowbray I took a trip out this morning. At least two Common Redstart showing well from the track albeit quite distantly. I did a bit of video digiscoping but it was pretty windy so apologies for the wind noise.

Also had a Willow Tit calling… not something I hear in the Soar Valley anymore. Hopefully the LROS funded nest-box scheme will help this fast declining species.
