         Black Redstarts Phoenicurus ochruros are charming and characterful little birds with a liking for human habitations. They are a very familiar sight in continental Europe and as the climate continues to warm up it would seem likely that this species could become more firmly established in the UK. This selection of photographs was taken in Portugal. As an insight into the type of prey that was being taken an enlarged image has been included of a Black Redstart with what appears to be a Field Cricket (or similar) in its bill.
