Ingrebourne Valley + Barking Bay

Started early doors on Shaun and Mo's patch to find some birds as they often struggle (ha ha) and was soon rewarded with yet another Ring Ouzel on the north side of Ingrebourne Hill, this bird quickly moved through north and no further sign despite shaunboy eventually getting out of bed and joining me in an extensive search.

Further up the Valley it was evident that there were lots of Whitethroat in, including two birds seen nest building, both Reed and Sedge warblers singing and at least two Cuckoo present.

Top paddock held a couple of wheatear, me and Shaunboy then split and i jam in on a Common Redstart by the bench which again disappears north before Shaun arrives!! again a thorough search proves fruitless but is later spotted in the bottom paddock by Russ.

Barking Bay- Me and Shaun locate a Ring Ouzel, which is almost been present for a week now, but again the bird is still proving to be mobile and elusive.

Other birds of note were two Wheatear and some distant Black-wit wheeling around.
