Hi, yesterday I spotted the short eared owl hunting over the heather moor and getting mobbed by a crow. Today with Bri we again saw it in the same location hunting away. Bri was trying to get a shot of it for the blog but was not succesful. We continued on our walk and we went to feed the swans and the cygnets at the north end of the long pond. As they were feeding on the bread we noticed a chain of tadpoles some 20 yards long some 2-3 ft from the bank. Some were indeed under the swans, a rough estimate would put the figure at 5,000 tadpoles. Hopefully Bri’s pics will do our observations justice….quite remarkable !
