Spent the morning at Linky Down, Aston Rowant to look for the Ring Ouzels.The birds were near the bottom of the hill in the valley, about 100m away feeding on the grass.The birds then moved further up the hill. I was soon joined by a few oxfordshire birders and we all had good views of the birds from the path feeding near the juniper trees but they were still to far off to get any decent shots of them.
After a while all the other birders decided to go but i stayed.As they had gone and there was no sign of anybody else coming to view the birds i took the liberty and walked down into the valley to try and get some better views and pics. I sat behind a bush and waited for them to show and they didn't disappoint!
A Stoat was also seen running around near the juniper bushes and rabbit burrows.
