RING OUZEL EXCITEMENT – OR MAYBE NOT!

Had myself a wander around Belton House gardens and woods today. Lots of the usual suspects to be seen and I was beginning to think nothing unusual when all of a sudden something caught my eye. Sort of blackbird sized and shaped, dark coloured, white neck – no it couldn’t be could it?

I got a bit excited, and then spoiled it by looking at it through my binos.

Can you see why I may have got excited?
