122/365 Ring Ouzel

As the rain had started to slow down last night, I organised a small outing with my good friend this morning to see if the weather had brought down any migrants on to the Malvern Hills.  Meeting at half 6, we decided to do the two highest points on the Malverns (North Hill and Worcestershire Beacon) hoping something would have dropped in.  We weren’t dissapointed with great sightings of 5 Ring Ouzels, and single Wheatear and Redstart.  To celebrate, todays image is of a male Ring Ouzel I photographed on the hills two years ago in the autumn when they came back through the Malverns from their breeding grounds.
