Barn Owl – 17th June

Whilst walking towards the Wader Scrape this evening I was startled when a Barn Owl flew right in front of me and disappeared into the trees of the New Plantation.  It was quickly located and then I watched it for some time hunting around the Reserve especially the Large Gravel Pit and Wader Scrape areas.

The eight Red-crested Pochard were again present on the Slurry Lagoon. JMD.
