Short-eared Owls arriving or going?

Hi

In the garden today I saw 4 Lesser Redpolls, 2 male Bramblings and the Common Buzzard on our roof and in nearby trees for much of the day!

At Brixworth CP this morning there were 10 Lesser Redpolls, with 2 Kingfishers at the adjacent Pitsford Reservoir in Pintail Bay.  At the Old Scaldwell Road feeding station at least one Brambling could be heard calling but were not seen.

At Harrington Airfield this afternoon there were at least a dozen Bramblings in the usual spot off the Draughton Road.

At 3.30pm, five Short-eared Owls were visible all together in the southern-most field at Blueberry Farm, their actions suggesting they had just arrived or were just going!

Regards

Eleanor
