'Pinchy' the original male Ring Ouzel remained today, pleasing the 33 attendees of the CFBW Bird Group Spring Migration Walk. They were also pleased to see a Wheatear and a pair of Little Owls among other things. On Sunday and Monday, four Ring Ouzels were present on the farm, with Pinchy near Reads Rest and three at Tart's Field. From Sunday morning to late morning on Tuesday, an immaculate female Golden Plover in summer plumage showed well in the fields south of Reads Rest Cottages before flying high east.

Fieldfares are clinging on: half a dozen were at Poultry Field today.
Beddington's not treated me so well. I've dipped four times in the last fortnight, missing Brent Goose today and recently hearing but not seeing a Grey Plover depart; missing a Little Tern by less than half an hour and not hearing a Nightingale!
