Black Redstarts in search of shelter

Local patch: And finally the snow came even to the coast; unfortunately only mixed with rain, so it didn't accumulate on the ground. The Karst though has a soft "white mantle", so it's possible that some birds will drop down to the coast in search of food. Meanwhile 3 Black Redstarts (1 male + 2 females) were seeking shelter from the heavy rain (and occasional snow) beneath the eaves of the houses. Usually sitting on the window shutters (see pics).
