The redstart is actually a Black Redstart.
The angle is not that difficult, because an excellent photograph like this shows the wing formula and primary spacing very well, which differ clearly between both species, and rule out Common Redstart here. See attached composite.
In addition, the upperparts are far too cold grey for Common Redstart.
