RING OUZEL delight


Another day of sunshine and showers, with the wind mainly northerly but much lighter than of late, allowing temperatures to recover to 14 degrees C. A surprising number of migrants arrived overnight

All morning was spent in NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE observing a certain High Arctic gull (detailed notes/images/discussion to be inserted) but on the way back, checked out a couple of BEDFORDSHIRE locations.......


A nice selection of waders present including 1 of the splendid male RUFFS, a COMMON SANDPIPER, a GREEN SANDPIPER and Ringed Plovers, Common Redshanks and Lapwings


Met up with Lol and enjoyed superb views of 4 male RING OUZELS feeding together on the grass slope above Tesco's, at the east end of the complex. Interestingly, two of the males were ringed


At least 11 MONK PARAKEETS still in residence
