Our only birding opportunity this day was at Kremnické Bane, just north of Kremnica in Slovakia. Here we had 20 minutes at the station, waiting for our transport to the historic, and very fine, town of Kremnica. As my background is with railways, I know that, in Central Europe, you can be almost certain of finding Black Redstarts at country railway stations (railway yards are also good). This location was no exception with a pair of birds nesting inside a station building (access through a broken window) beside where we were waiting. There were also House Martins under the eaves of the same building, and Serins on the wires above the tracks in front of the building.
