Red Sky at Night, Barn Owl's Delight

The morning started well when we saw a male Hen Harrier on the way to the location. At the venue itself we saw at least 2 Peregrines harassing Curlew, Dunlin, Redshank, Knot, Golden & Grey Plovers, Lapwings & various duck species. There was a field containing 15 Roe Deer which came fairly close to the road. There were at least 2 Marsh Harriers, but possibly another one present.

The afternoon session was less successful, but was redeemed by a Little Owl perched on some hay bales. On the way back I drove through Stone Creek & was rewarded with close views of a Barn Owl against a delicate pink sky.
