RING OUZEL

Bird Watching (UK) - - Welcome -

So much more than a black-and-white moun­tain black­bird, the Ring Ouzel is a wild, un­tamed, very shy free spirit, which shuns the way of man. This only goes to en­hance its beauty, as it can be tough to get a glimpse of its del­i­cately scaled plumage and sil­ver-lined wings when it can spend an eternity hid­ing in a bush or fly off at the first sign of hu­man in­tru­sion. Ouzels pass through the coun­try dur­ing April, and love short-cropped grass with a bit of cover to hide in, of­ten favour­ing higher ground, even on pas­sage.
