Ouzel Fest - Holdens Farm, Horwich, Gtr. Manchester - 20th Apr 2007.

14 Ring Ouzels in pasture below Holdens Farm is the largest single flock I have ever seen.... Fabulous! Two Fieldfare asscociated with the Ouzels. A bonus bird in the form of a singing male Lesser Whitethroat provided the chap beside me who's local patch this is with a first site record. Two single Tree Pipit flew west and several Wheatears and a male Stonechat were noted. An excellent couple of hours.
