Two out of three

Ring Ouzel

Common Redstart

Amongst anything 'better', my three real targets for this week were Ring Ouzel, Common Redstart and Osprey. Yesterday's Ring Ouzel remained today and showed well for many happy birders, some of whom jammed in on a male Common Redstart that Richard Draper and I found along Slangs (later relocating to Infront George, where it was seen next to the ouzel at one point). Both were utterly cracking birds and it was hard to pull myself away. That leaves just one to go, will it happen by the time I return to college?



Further good news today, my dad's recovering well and should be back home soon :-)
