This weekend I found this little bird at the corner of the patch of green, admiring the Aloe plants. Actually, I noticed it first by the flash of orange that shot over my head and landed there. Could get a few pictures of what I think, should be the black redstart
And then it hopped on to the lemon tree, which has started to blossom. The black redstart is a winter visitor in these parts and one can't but marvel at the enormous distances these puny wings fly ...

Foraging in the grounds, I think I got the female redstart as well. There is a wall at the back and also at the back of the lemon tree, so maybe they were looking for a place for nesting. Gaps and crevices in the walls are also used by robins for nesting and I hope they get a suitable vacant lot, out of reach of the several cats that prowl the area
