On the decline in Europe, this Redstart was busily going in and out of the nest a couple of weeks ago. The second photograph here was taken shortly after spotting the bird. As much as it would have been nice to get a close up shot of it, once the nest became apparent, I took a quick shot at 600mm from where I was already stood, then left the area.
