The female less colourful but I unfortunately have not managed to capture her red tail in this session.My favourite shot of the session was of the male on a branch covered in lichen that is so typical of anicent oak wood land they prefer.

My only shot of the female, this one was ringed and obviously part of a local study on the species.The male is a tricky bird for photograph exposure especially in the dappled and often limited light of the woodland.
