Sunny with high cloud, a little cooler, 13°, breezy ENE.
Not only did I connect with the Ring Ouzel (albeit briefly) but also found a Redstart on the hill today.
A text from Michael P (thanks) letting me know of a ♀ Ring Ouzel on the hill at 08:30 so a swift walk out to the hill and I managed to connect with it around 11:30. It was very flighty and elusive but got good enough views and heard it call.
It flew from the hedge by the muck pile and in to a Hawthorn on the hill and as I approached it flew again to another Hawthorn at the top of the hill and that was the last I saw of it.
A couple of Swallow and a Yellow Wagtail flew over and a Willow Warbler moved through the Hawthorns and as I was making my way back I connected with a ♂ Redstart in the hedge on the west of the hill, again a very elusive bird and only got a few glimpses through the hedgerow.
Still around 30+ Linnet on the hill, a few Meadow Pipit noted and a pair of Pied Wagtail.
A few more Blackcap around (5), 2 Yellow Wagtail still in the paddock and a Whitethroat singing.
Goldcrest singing near the Millennium Wood again.
At least 5 Whitethroat on Cholsey Marsh today (per Tony Williams).
Butterflies; Brimstone, Small Tortoiseshell, Peacock and Speckled Wood.
