Ring Ouzel and Sparrowhawk

DSC_3487-Edit

A passage male and female ring ouzel turned up at Ogmore recently and as I was waiting crouched tight against a stone wall, a male sparrowhawk made a brief but welcome appearance.

Ring Ouzel

Situation and Locality. – In clefts and on ledges of rock, steep banks, holes in stone walls, barns, limekilns and sometimes quite on the ground. In the summer of 1907 I found a nest in an isolated holly bush in Westmorland. It was some ten to twelve feet from the ground. In the mountain and moorland parts of the north and west of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
