Latest Entry: Ring Ouzels Dartmoor
- Ring Ouzels Dartmoor 19 October 2011
I always look forward to seeing migrant ring ouzels on Dartmoor at the end of October. This autumn they have made an early appearance and several flocks have already been found.
- Ring Ouzels and Black-throated Thrush, Scorriton Down 30 October 2009
I have been visiting Scorriton Down over the last few years to watch the herd of farmed red deer there. On the 21st October 2009 I was sketching them from the moorland edge near Chalk Ford. Thrushes were moving south over the Down in large flocks, at least 300 fieldfares and 150 redwings – the first big flocks of the autumn for me.
