spent locally, namely the Malvern Hill's.
Ring Ouzel and Wheatear would be the main
target and possibly Redstart, Report's
during the the week included a single
Wheatear and a single Ring Ouzel, hoping
that they stay for the weekend I made
my why up to Britishcamp first thing
A quick scout around revealed a few Meadow
I then started to work my way around to
the S/E side of the hill where the Ring Ouzel
had previously been reported. I stopped to
have a quick look and before I could get my
hand on my bins a Ring Ouzel flew by!.. landing
100yrds away, I was just about to reach for
the camera but before I could it was off again
and with a small flap of it's wings into the wind
it made some 250yrds back to where I just
I made my back to where I see it land to find it
calling in the brambles near the path.
I slowly moved forward and as I did it started
to move further and further up the hill
eventually coming to a stop on the hillside.
I spent a good while after getting the Ring Ouzel
searching around but I couldn't locate the
Wheatear however I did manage a Redstart
and a Mistle thrush.
Not a bad day at all.
