Early morning update 12/4

This from Birdguides this morning:

07:52 12/04/12 Ring Ouzel Beds Blow's Downs one in Sink Hole this morning

And a message from Mick Price saying there's a Ring Ouzel and a Wheatear on the paddocks at Blows Downs too.

Yesterday evening (11th) at Broom GP the Short-eared Owl was still showing well on the south side of the main lake, and there were two male White Wagtails on the old washout pit. A Marsh Harrier also flew north at around 7:25, per Mark Thomas.

Quiet at Broom this morning, with the highlight a single Dunlin still and a Tawny Owl (Steve Blain)
