Went back to check if ring ouzel still there or if any further build up of wheatears, but it wasn't and wheatears reduced to 2, but did see...

little owl
stonechat (male)
2 willow warblers
chiffchaff
and 10 stock doves.

Then just as I was nearly back at my car, I saw a smallish bird dropping from a bush in the distance, and upon getting the bins on it found it to be a male REDSTART.

Just might be a good spring for me and for Ludworth.

Thought I'd start a site report thread for one of my local patches, and today is as good a day as any because after nearly twenty years of trying up here, I found my first RING OUZEL. A superb male, it was up by the road to Rowarth on the south side just after the bridleway track, but soon did a vanishing act. Also:-

5 wheatears
3 curlew
6+ skylark
40 summer plumaged golden plover flew over
lots of passage meadow pipits (maybe up to 100 including birds on territory)
buzzard

Here's to more good days in the next few weeks.
