Black redstart.

Managed to get lucky this evening as I was on my way back from looking for wheatear.
at 1st I thought female redstart but I couldn't get over how grey it was, and it was very flighty and wouldn't stay still for long in between me reaching for binos and cameras, plus it didn't help with the sun on my camera screen but when I got back I thought hmmmm black redstart, I got in touch with Rob Stonehouse who confirmed it was. bonus.
