5th November 2016 Short eared Owl


Short-eared Owl.

Bob tipped me off about this roosting Short-eared Owl this morning. Always great to see these birds close up on the deck. An eagle eyed find too! It’s astonishing how confident some birds are in their belief they are not visible. I probably could have gotten closer but left it well alone. A Dartford Warbler was also frequenting the same spot. A single Chiffchaff and Firecrest in the wood along with a small band of Goldcrest and Tits.

Of note there was a brief Great grey Shrike and Woodlark at Hodcombe during the week, seen by RC.
