Caught up with the little beauty this afternoon. Had three decent sightings as it hopped in and out of the gorse initially before it moved up the hill slightly joining up with a pair of Blackbirds on a track in front of the top tree line.At one stage some bozo nearly decapitated another birder and my good self as his model aircraft nose dived into the hillside. That wasn't too bad but what upset us was the fact that it startled the Ring Ousel which lifted and dropped into a much larger and thicker area of gorse which had it hidden from view for some 20 minutes!
I'm surprised so few came to see it. It was on view on the eastern side of the old spoil heap in the slight dip where the gorse bushes are. I've included an image of the area below.
