OUZELS remain at the Beacon

I bashed all around the Beacon, best I could manage was some Wheatears. John Gearing arrived and promptly found 3 RING OUZELS ( 2m, 1f) in the sheep pens. These were flushed by a walker and flew to the South-East slope by the fence line. I managed to get back to the sheep field at this point, could see 2 stunning males feeding in the open and heard a third bird in bushes. 15 minutes later another male flew in ( from quite high ) from the South and landed with the other males. So 3 males 1 female. Wheatear count was up to 9 when I left, 3 Raven (Mike Wallen)
