Miswell RING OUZEL - Roy's fourth since 1996
This morning the reservoirs held little but a lingering Goldeneye and a few Wigeon. On reaching the Dry Canal I checked the field next to the Miswell Farm footpath and spotted a Wheatear flying away from me, while looking for it I found a Ring Ouzel – only just in Herts as it was at the far end of the field from the footpath. This is the fourth Ring Ouzel I have seen in this field since 1996 – not bad for a site away from the hills (Roy Hargreaves).
