Not Another Ouzel !!!

Got to the patch at 6am, no sign of the bony at a quick scan so headed for the scrub, freezing north-easterly good job i had my long johns on and gloves !! wouldn't believe were in mid may, nothing doing headed back to the river where a few birder's had assembled, had a chat then walked off towards the car when in came the Bonaparte's Gull (at 08:24) with a single black-head shouted back and we all enjoyed good but brief view's including hanningfields ackers.

Belly rumbling headed off home for some breakfast, back for mid afternoon for a another go at the scrub, nothing doing till i started walking back to the car and stumbled on yet another RING OUZEL on what has been an amazing spring for these on the patch and was probably the 4th of the year.
