First RING OUZELS flight in

A second, longer (including a loop up to the Beacon) walk up into the hills this morning yielded much the same birds as yesterday with the addition of: RING OUZEL - 2 Willow Warbler - 2 The RING OUZELS I was lucky to see in a tiny hawthorn bush on the rim of Incombe Hole at about 6.40. They flew off into the bottom of the hole after seeing me so I didn't get a long look - one was definitely male but I wasn't sure about the other - it flew off first and I only could see a bit of white before it disappeared. I decided to have a second look on the return journey but couldn't relocate them. One Willow warbler was singing in the scrub above the hole; the other was right at the lower end. (Sue)
