Sadly it was time to return home today but I couldn't drag myself away without an early morning session with the redstarts. Unfortunately the light wasn't the best, but the birds were incredibly obliging, especially the male, which afforded plentiful opportunities for photography. All too soon it was time to return for breakfast, packing and goodbyes. Still unable to head straight home, we stopped for coffee and cake in Dolgellau, where I had excellent views of pied and grey wagtails feeding fledged chicks. Unfortunately the birding lens was packed away in the car and inaccessible.

Apart from the first image which is a dunnock and the last which is a shot of the 'big house' all other images are a redstart fest. The redstarts were nesting in the back of the far building in a hole in the wall in the final image. Just in front of the left hand telegraph pole.
