Another of Tony’s, a lovely shot of a young Barn Owl having a doze.
A young Barn Owl has been seen quite regularly, hunting over the tip, airfield and the rough area towards the channel, often in the rain and in the afternoon. This morning it was caught in a heavy downpour, just hope it has managed to find a dry shelter and quickly learns, hunting in the rain is detrimental.
This week as we have driven up the path, the tides have just been in the right position to see Turnstone, Grey Plover, Redshank and Oystercatcher feeding on the tide edge and when it reaches the stones they fly off to another area.
We also put up a Cormorant off the fishing pond, judging by it’s take off speed , it can’t have had much luck.
Also today there were nine Hooper or Bewick swans on the channel sand, difficult to identify at the distance,m and on the walk back two more flew past flying north.
