Oozing Quality

Shy, skulking, skittish. Migrant Ring Ouzels can be really hard to get good views of and often it’s just the tail-end of a chacking ‘black’ bird disappearing over a hedge, if you’re lucky. Sometimes, though, things can be quite different and today’s fabulous male, found by Phil Jackman by the second bunker at Harrington Airfield, appears to have been really quite showy, as the images below illustrate.
