Cold, wet and 'orrible (09/04/12)

Went to Easthampstead Park school where I found that the Ring Ouzel hadn't been seen for over 4 hours.  As I was just going to give up a bird flew into the tall tress by the pony/donkey paddock.  It was a Blackbird type and then it turned around to reveal its white gorget - it was the Ring Ouzel!

I whistled and waved for the other birder that was present to come over but during the time I had turned my back the bird had disappeared and never appeared again.  It was disappointing not to get anyone else onto it.

A bonus was a showy Little Owl in the little copse.
