  1. Dr. Harsha, this bird is not Black redstart. The Black restart is greyish-black, but never blue. It looks like Plumbeous water redstart (Phoenicurus fuliginosus), but I wonder how it could happen to be seen in France? It is native to South Asia and China?

    1. I have found the right subspecies - Phoenicurus ochruros gibraltariensis. But still the record is for the main scientific name. Posted 4 months ago
