Ivinghoe (14th April)
It's been a long time since I've visited Ivinghoe so it was nice to be back and with sunshine on my side it turned out to a nice afternoon. Too bad the birds didn't play ball. Despite considerable effort on behalf of my brother and I we couldn't find any Ring Ouzels at Incombe Hole or the Ivinghoe Hills. Unfortunately, as it was a sunny Sunday afternoon, there was considerable disturbance by the large number of people out on the hills and as a result no migrants whatsoever had decided to stay. As consolation, I did see my first singing CORN BUNTING of the year, a couple Red Kites flew about and there was a very showy Marsh Tit at Steps Hill.
