I at last caught up with the 3 Ring Ouzels in the fields near to Retreat farm on Tuesday at 1730. There were two males and one female. They were feeding on Ivy berries in the hedge and then coming out on to the field to feed. Several Blackbirds were also investigating them.
This is the first time that I have had Ring Ouzels hang around at Thornton, no doubt due to the unsettled weather conditions.
