Ring Ouzel @ Blows Downs

This male Ring Ouzel has spent a couple of days in the paddocks. Low evening light meant a high ISO and there was no way to get closer without disturbing the bird.

Water Pipit

Having missed the Water Pipit at Octagon Farm pools the last few winters, it was good to see one there today. A fine specimen too - a peachy-pink suffusion on the breast, blue-grey head and mantle, a small amount of streaking on flanks, with a strong white supercillium and blackish leg colour. The bird was not approachable so definitely one for digiscopers.
