Instead of heading to Ferry Meadows CP, this morning, I cycled back to the north end of the Milton estate, between Bretton, Peterborough, and the village of Marholm. The idea was to check the field which held a Ring Ouzel last weekend, and see if any new ouzels had come along. After a few minutes of staring at this field a Mistle Thrush popped out to feed, then a couple of Blackbirds. And after about ten minutes, out popped a Ring Ouzel. It wasn’t a new one, though, but the same rather dull (for a Ring Ouzel) female that my son Ed and I saw on Sunday!
In other news, back at the office (our kitchen in Peterborough), I have heard both Blackcap and Chiffchaff singing, this morning.
