And another RING OUZEL at Barton

I couldn't resist coming up here (Barton Hills) after work, after hearing about a female reported earlier and that I only got brief views last time I attended. Browsing around found me 1 cracking adult male RING OUZEL close by in the basin beside the Pasque flower Hill, this time on the ground. I sat there for about 30 minutes absorbing its splendour as it was feeding away, on this lovely warm evening. Then I went home for an 'rollocking' from wifey and Charlie. It was worth it though (Darin Stanley)
