forgot to mention, 2 barn owls crossed the road on the way home on Tuesday between West Witton and Wensley. Not trying one-upmanship on your Tawnys Gaz, your post just reminded me!

Rather surprisingly the Starling murmuration at Catterick was not there tonight. We could see large flocks in the distance but they seemed to be heading to somewhere further south down the AI.
On Tuesday evening the Egret roost at Bolton pond included at least 29 Little egrets and 1 Cattle but no sign of the Great Egret which has been seen there.
