Flock of Five Ring Ouzels at Carmel Head

As Tony White has had Ring Ouzels around Ynys y Fidlyn by Carmel Head in the past, and there was a movement of them in the North West region yesterday I thought it was worth a visit.Richard Birch joined me and on the Ring Ouzel front we weren't disappointed.After we had walked down to the beach and up around the coastal path over the Fulmar Cliffs I heard a funny call. I looked up and there overhead was a flock of five Ring Ouzels and they started to give their more familiar chacking call.They were flying from "The Head" south, they landed on a nearby crag briefly before flying over the Large Plantation and then headed on south towards Church Bay. What a treat!
