Ring Ouzel

Recently there has been a good series of Ring Ouzel records within the recording area, with a male on 24th April, up to 3 birds 1st-4th May and a female on 9th May. Although migration has generally been slow, there was a glut of notable migration at the end of April, with highlights including a Great-white Egret (24th April), 2 Ospreys (25th and 26th April), 3 Common Cranes (24th April) and 2 Blue-headed Wagtails (25th April), as well as smaller numbers of Tre Pipits, Redstarts, Whinchats and good totals of Yellow Wagtails and Arctic Terns.
