RING OUZEL on Barton Hills

Fairly quiet this morning with three Northern Wheatears, Two at SE corner below Fairy Ring (1m,1f) and a male on the slopes of Bonfire Knoll. No sign of any Ring Ouzels but a flock of at least 20 Linnets moving about. On Saturday there had been three Wheatear at SE corner(2m,1f) together and also a superb male RING OUZEL with very striking gorget and prominent white wing panels. Also on Saturday had both Song and Mistle Thrushes carrying food, and also a single Fieldfare in bushes near middle fence. (Ian Kelly)
