Burton Dassett :: 11 April 2015

Just finished breakfast and checked with @bobhazell whether the Ring Ouzel from yesterday had been reported at Napton Reservoir this morning. Ring OuzelWhile waiting for a response, @grimsbury_birds tweeted to say that he had just spotted one near the Burton Dassett Country Park. I jumped in the car and found where they were viewing from. Initially I joined Gareth and Allan in viewing from the road but after a while they decided to take a stroll to get a better view down in to the hollow. No view from there either. Eventually they had to go but about 20 minutes after they had gone it appeared at the bottom right of the field. Another tick for me.

Also managed to tick yellow wagtail and jackdaw with a single swallow flypast. Entertained by a buzzard attempting to catch a thermal on the edge of the hill, and it appears that @grimsbury_birds managed to catch a photo, possibly of the same bird, on the ground later.
