Ring Ouzels

I think Ring Ouzel is the most regular PBC area species I have yet to find. It's not for want of trying and this spring is seeing record numbers stopping off in our area so I've covered more ground than usual. Today I've checked out the cracking grasslands and heaths between Great Byard's Sale and Ring Haw and had a look around the northern parts of the King's Dyke complex, all without any joy. However my route sort of took me near Pondersbridge so I called in to see the two males found by Steve Dudley at The Plough pub where I got this shot.
