WINTERING RING OUZEL in NE SCOTLAND

A male RING OUZEL was present this afternoon in a field at Broadshade Farm (Aberdeenshire) close to the golf course. Watched from my kitchen window, it was seen associating with a relatively small flock of Fieldfares and Starlings.

Earlier in the day, 38 Common Buzzard and 9 Red Kite were seen riding thermals over a wood at Easter Echt, west of Loch of Skene (Rob Minshull)
