Ring Ouzel ~ South Brent

Single male Ring Ouzel showing briefly on Aish Ridge above South Brent midmorning today, was feeding with a small number of Fieldfare and Blackbirds in a berry laden Hawthorne.

Three Ring Ouzel were seen in the same area on two occasions during December, it would seem that at least one is over wintering.

Despite the bright wall to wall sunshine it was wickedly cold up on the edge of the moors and apart from two Robins no other small birds seen, Heron seen flying over, three Buzzards, one flock of a counted 33 Fieldfare, smaller numbers of Starling and Redwing a counted 19 Herring Gulls.
