Another day another Ring Ouzel

I saw another Ring Ouzel on the Wirral today found by Colin Jones in the pony paddocks adjacent to Park Lane. A female and not as showy as the male at Leasowe yesterday but beggars can't be choosers.

I'd joined Allan for a walk around the fields inland of the Lighthouse. Parking in Carr Lane we slowly walked our way across the raillway crossing and up Park Lane with Molly in tow. Not many migrants around although a fly over Tree Pipit and 9 grounded Wheatears in one group were nice to see.

Deciding to walk Molly back the way we'd come and pick up the car I joined Allan for a chip butty and a cuppa at the Lighthouse cafe before driving round to where Colin was still waiting and seeing the Ouzel.

Great stuff - Ring Ouzel's are always worth a second post on the same day!
