More Short eared Owls

Yesterday I spent an afternoon at Burwell in Cambridgeshire watching the Owls.

Shortie at Burwell
Only a couple of Owls were on view along with a pair of Marsh Harriers, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Common Buzzard and four Grey Partridge.

I have a real weakness for Owls as they just have so much character, it was great to see them hunting at Burwell again this year although it has to be said that the road in has got a whole lot worse and I'd recommend anybody going to use the car park by cock-up bridge and walk round or simply view from the bridge.

The year list has stalled and remains at a frustrating 299.
