Soil Hill

Just a few bits from my recent visits
This morning I was pretty buzzed to stumble across two Ring Ouzel in the small dell on the western side of the hill. Unfortunately the birds flushed from their position and headed round to the hills summit, before flying off in the direction of Ogden. They appeared to drop back in somewhere around Ogden Back Lane, so that area may be worth searching for them. There was also a singing Whitethroat in the same location.
Yesterday there were two Wheatears and two singing Willow Warblers around the Hill, as well as only my second ever Soil Hill Jay
Both Red-legged and Grey Partridges have been around in the past couple of days as well.
