Avon Dam - Ring Ouzels

This morning 7 or 8 Ring Ouzels, feeding on rowan berries, were largely outnumbered by birdwatchers. With them was our first single Fieldfare of the season. In the valley were a Buzzard, a couple of Kestrels and a Sparrowhawk. On the track up a Hummingbird Hawkmoth was feeding on the rhododendrons.

Just above the little bridge, two Dippers were in the middle of the stream. They were posturing at each other in a very upright pose with chests out and bills pointing skywards, something we've not seen before.
