Soil Hill (am) and Castle Carr Road (pm)

Soil Hill
Checked the hill with the scope over Ogden plantation just in case JJL's Osprey from the previous evening had dropped in to roost in the plantation. No show there, it must have moved on.
2 Ring Ouzels (male and a female) on and around the hill but very elusive at times  (AC, MH, DSB). Plenty of Meadow Pipits, a few Linnets and Skylarks about. 1 Moorhen on the NK pond, 2 Curlew and a few Lapwings though farmer activity on the north fields has probably curtailed things for a while !

Later it he day we had a check along Castle Carr Road but despite a good search we couldn't relocate the Rng Ouzels that had been present the last few days -  could still be thereabouts (?).
5 Wheatears still present
