Redstart? Bird song, Scotland (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hello all,

I heard this song for a while, in an open mixed broadleaf woodland (and adjacent to farmland) in East Scotland, in early July.

Audio recording attached. Bird singing high in the tree, at 0:09, 0:19 and 0:30 and each verse is slightly different and last for only 1 or 2 seconds.

Is this a common restart or a black redstart? (in the background there is a siskin calling) Thanks,
