Reply To: Ring Ouzels

Dartmoor Dave

Thanks for that GH, immensely interesting, Judy and I listened to the whole broadcast.  However, having listened to that I can’t see how dartymoor used Ring Ouzels to prevent development on the Teign Estuary as they seem only to nest in upland areas in the most remote of locations and not on river estuaries?

Judy and I were fortunate enough to see one in the Chitern Hills albeit half a mile away through a twitcher’s scope!  We wondered what they were watching and were told this particular valley, right next to the large M40 cutting, was a known stopping off point on their migration route.
