Barn Owl

We also came across the Barn Owl, it was resting in a Willow tree near the south feeders, flew off and settled again between the feeders until disturbed by a flock of Magpies, see photo.

It was one of the best mornings for a long time, skeins of geese flying south but very high, must have seen over a dozen varying in size from 50 to 150.

A fast flying Sparrow Hawk passed through the trees between the feeders and then a Merlin skimmed across the marsh hoping to catch a wader.

Lots of activity at the feeders, a good variety but no sign of the Bullfinch, lots of Goldfinch including a few young still waiting adult plumage, see photo.
