The Scrub's first ever Ring Ouzel in April 2004Yesterday's recce at Kensal Green Cemetery with the director and cameraman team from ITV's 'Countrywise' went well. They were impressed with the site itself and thought that come the shoot day I wouldn't need a script - they just want me to chat.
This morning I journeyed to The Scrubs again. I'm still feeling a bit despondent due to the lack of 'good' migrants at my patch this spring. No Common Redstarts, Cuckoos, Nightingales and crucially, no Ring Ouzels. The Ouzel, my favourite bird, has been making a regular appearance for the past 5 years - as I have oft said.
It's still not too late. Well, that's what I keep telling myself!
