Longmynd - Ring Ouzel

A general look around the Longmynd with Andy this morning produced a pair of Redstart, a few Wheatear, numerous Whitethroat, Mipits, Red Kite and.... No doubt about the highlight - this very obliging Ring Ouzel at Pole Cott.....

It was feeding on the short grass, picking up a wide variety of invertebrates!








Closer and closer it came....










The low angle certainly works, putting all my previous Ring Ouzel efforts to shame...








Makes up for the lack of Dotterel and even helped me over missing an Osprey at VP by less than 5 mins!
