Redstart in Gloucester city

A Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus) was sighted this morning (18 April) at 10:00hrs in the garden of Gloucestershire Archives in Kingsholm.  It was positively ID’d (via the 2014 Crossley ID Guide) and exhibited classic Redstart behavior.

Update (at 12:30 on 18 April) I should have said that the above sighting was a male bird.  However a female Redstart has now also appeared in the garden and the two are in fairly close proximity so may be a breeding pair?
