Tuesday 3rd May 2011

Lots of news to catch up after from the last 3 weeks, but thanks to Ken Beckett I managed to catch up with a fine male Ring Ouzel in the Paris Farm Paddocks.  A female Wheatear was also present (per Steve Nunn) so suddenly it's all happening!  My ability to take a good photo hasn't approved during my extended break - come on you can see what it is!  An April update will be published soon.

Good to see you back. Is that the Paris Farm down towards Hadlow?

Hi Adam.
Glad to see you blogging again, been wondering what had happened to you. That's a great bird to return with. Always nice to get a record shot of the bird.

Adam, I thought you'd retired and gone off to Cornwall, welcome back.
That photo's OK, it shows people what the bird would look like if they were to see it in the field, not as one of those super-doopa, up close and tarted up images.

Hi Adam, Great to get the Ring Ouzel, at least it stayed around to get some record of it, nice one.

Welcome back Adam :-) Great present to welcome you! See what you nearly missed :-)

Hi Kieron

Paris Farm is just off the Rocks Rd, East Malling and the paddocks are viewable from the footpath that runs from here across to Kiln Barn Road.
