Ring Ouzels

I had a couple of hours to spare so I checked out Cheesegate Nab hoping for a pass thru migrant Pied Wagtail, Meadow Pipit, Crow and Linnets to wet the appetite first and then blackbird no there it was and then two and finally four in all, Ring Ouzels [75], a splendid migrant very much like a Blackbird with what they call a gorget on the breast this being white in colour and the beautiful silver shading in the wings always great to catch these birds on the way thru thay will probably hang about for a couple of days feeding up and then moving on to breeding grounds.
