Black Redstart

Phoenicurus ochruros

Black Redstart is a medium small passerine, similar to the Common Redstart. but is much darker especially the male. Mostly they are seen on passage and have been known to winter. Occasionally they breed locally usually around derelict or run down buildings.  We have ringed two to date and the most recent was recaptured 13 days after ringing; clearly a passage bird.
