Double act continues

Ring Ouzel

The male Ring Ouzel put on a great performance for the couple more twitchers that made it to Canons Farm before 10.00am (when L&G started mowing their pitch) but was not seen again by a steady flow of potential admirers later on; it's possible that it was completely pushed off. Walking along the west side of Broad Field I noticed a bird fly across and land on a fence post at Harrier Field, it was the Black Redstart, a pleasant surprise as I thought it had gone. Only one of a good number of would-be Ouzel/Redstart admirers connected with this bird today. Still no Red Kite!!! Perhaps I'm just being greedy . . .
