This cracking male Ring Ouzel was seen this morning at Årstafältet. The bird is present for its third day today, though it was difficult to locate this morning due to a strong, cold northwest wind. I eventually found it feeding in the shelter of a raised bank.
A fairly shy bird, it was wary and would not allow close approach. This ais a summer migrant and breeds in mountainous habitat, however it can be seen in spring and autumn on pasage while migrating. A scarce bird at the best of times and always very nice to see one.
