About ten weeks ago I was up on the shoot where I keeper and noticed some unusual birds as i crossed a grass field that was being left for hay. There were about 30-40 hen birds which looked very similar to a female Fieldfair and about 10 what i presumed were cocks which were like a blackbird with a smal white bib. I asked around as I was struggling to ID them in books or online but no one new and i started to question myself.
Then a few days ago i saw them in a magazine and they are Ring Ouzels and i felt great relief to know that my eyes hadn't deceived me. Anyhow i wondered how many people had seen these birds and in what circumstances and regularity.
