Are we feeling lucky?!
Look what our #GameKeeper found whilst checking his trap for stoats, this nest of #RedListed #RingOuzels eggs is found in very close proximity to the trap.
Slightly smaller and slimmer than a blackbird - male ring ouzels are particularly distinctive with their black plumage with a pale wing panel and striking white breast band. The ring ouzel is primarily a bird of the uplands, where it breeds mainly in steep sided-valleys, crags and gullies, from near sea level in the far north of Scotland up to 1,200m in the Cairngorms. Let’s hope the stoat finds the trap and NOT the nest of eggs.
