Super Sunday

Sunday 13th April 2008

The showers held off this morning as Andy, Mark and myself scoured Cleeve Hill for Ring Ouzel. Eventually Mark spotted a male which flew straight overhead and continued flying west until it was eventually lost from sight. Other highlights of an excellent morning's birding were a male Cuckoo, a singing male Tree Pipit, four Wheatears, a male Stonechat, several Willow Warbler plus numerous Skylarks and Meadow Pipits. A male Redstart was in the butterfly conservation area. We stopped at Witcombe Reservoir on the way back to find a Yellow Wagtail, also four Pied Wagtails (photo above, and Meadow pipit below - I couldn't get any photos of the more notable stuff, so instead of Yellow Wag you get Pied, instead of Tree Pipit you get Meadow!).
