Ouzels and Redstart at Rosewell Hill

There have been several Ring Ouzels at Rosewall Hill near St Ives over the last few days, so Kate and I decided to pay a visit in the hope of finding some. We bumped into fellow birding friends John and Sue Rowe, Paul Dinning and Farley and Jean Rice. We were all delighted to see, three males and a female showing well on occasions and staying in view long enough for me to capture these shots. Later we were also treated to some fantastic views of a stunning male Redstart. What a great day's birding!!!
