A Lifer of Sorts

Out yesterday morning nice and early and was lucky enough to see a first, not anything mega rare but a big fluffy Tawny Owl chick.

I cant believe that after the 20 or so years of wildlife watching that I haven't ever seen newly fledged Tawny Owl chicks.

I was actually lucky enough to see four, as they all got harassed by the Blackbirds and Jays.


Remember this...

This is one year to the day (4th July), on our National River Warbler day.

Local Stuff

Out this morning looking for something that wasn't there but never mind. Other birds seen was a great fly over Hobby and loads of Whitethroat.

But also seen were at least 5 Hummingbird Hawk-Moths.
