Redstart and Gypo goslings

Second time Egyptian Geese have bred at Harrold - maybe these ones will survive - these must be a few days old.
A surprise find at Radwell. Although this bird was singing, it is clearly a passage migrant and my first singing Bedfordshire Redstart since the early 1990s.

Both are superb picture Richards. Are they common in your area?

Very kind of you to say so - too kind really! Egyptian Goose is much commoner in the last three or four years but this is the 2nd breeding record and Redstart is now extinct as a breeder but we get migrants annually.
