So back to the original bird and a female was also showing now too.
I sat down and watched them from about 60 yards away, when the male flew right over my head and landed behind me somewhere, the female followed. I waited.
Eventually I returned to the car which was parked on a grass meadow, I sat in the car with the scope set up outside the car and the Ouzels both came down to hunt for worms on the meadow - there was no need to walk miles up river - they were feeding by the roadside.
This is just a selection of he shots I got of the male, the female was more wary than the male who was quite bold - at least for a Ring Ouzel.
I never did go to my other two planned locations, I spent hours watching these two collect food, time and again they came back to the meadow to collect worms, grubs and catterpillars. So the Redstarts will have to wait for next weekend
