Long Eared Owl
Decided to go to Saltholme today for a walk in the winter sunshine. There seemed to be Redwings everywhere from the minute we stepped out of the house. A few Waxwings were once again in the trees opposite our home on Upsall Grove in Fairfield. Plenty of Fieldfares and Redwings at Saltholme too along with a single Waxwing near the Bottom Tank. Two Water Rail were giving excellent views at the Wildlife Watchpoint and a Long Eared Owl giving excellent views also on the reserve. We then went on an owl hunt on the way home but only managed one other species, that being a Little Owl or should I say three in West Stockton at a very reliable site.
