American Redstart - Eoligarry, Barra, Outer Hebrides, Scotland - 09.09.17

Four batches of photos of the sixth British Record found on 7th September by Bruce Taylor. A 32 year gap since the last record in 1985. It appears to be a female on the basis of pale lores but I am unsure whether ageing is possible.

It looks very different particularly in respect of mantle and head colouration depending on the light.

All the best

Paul
