Monday 10th December

Another beautiful crisp morning, but fairly quiet on the walk round, just spotted a Heron on one of the islands enjoying the morning sun.
The feeders were busy again, really need a slow motion camera to catch all the action.
Still trawling through old photos from 2011 and came across one of a Barn Owl perched in a tree. At the time it looked like any other Barn Owl but a few weeks later something caught my eye, on it’s right leg there was a leather fob with an open padlock still in place, see blown up view. We had seen this owl hunting in the area for a few weeks before so it was managing to survive but shortly after the photo was taken it disappeared. This year Barn Owls have been seen just south of the actual site, we had been hoping one of the boxes would be taken, but there is always next year, maybe we will have to drop the rent.
