Lunch hour twitching

Got an SMS from Lintutiedotus (the Finnish Twitchers Association's rare bird alert system) about an hour ago. Black Redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros) very close to my office. Hmmm... no meetings in the calendar and no urgent tasks at the moment, so I decided to have my lunch hour a bit earlier than normally.

I found the bird very quickly, an elegant male, feeding with insects and singing every now and then. It was very nice to see this species again, as few years had already gone from my previous observation of this species.
