Suburban shocker!

Ring Ouzel

It’s October, the east coast is brimming with migrant thrushes and many of us no doubt dream of something unusual finding its way to our garden. Today it happened for David and Sally Irven when this superb male Ring Ouzel dropped in to their Bush Hill, Northampton garden with migrant Blackbirds during this morning’s rain. It remained for an hour or so before leaving when the rain lifted. Thanks for the superb photos, David!
