Quiet Queensbury but a nice Tawny Owl

                                           Out of the wind

                          Takes some finding is this lot.


A bright, cold but dry day with clear blue empty skies other than plenty small gulls moving around for food.
A quick dinner today then down to check the local owl site out and get some pics which luckily I managed after a bit of searching. The Tawny wasnt in its usual position but had moved around the other side of the tree in the sun and out of the wind but was well hidden in the ivy.
The garden owner informed me that he had also seen the second bird so you can stop worrying about it for now Tracy.
Another report from Roy Morris this afternoon of 2 Woodcocks being flushed down the old station, thanks for that Roy.

Awww, thats great news.

On another note I thought I saw a bat on Green Lane the other evening as it was turning dusk and I think I saw one again this morning in Shelf as the sun was rising. Do you think they are bats or is there a bird they could have been? They were bat shaped!

Pipistrelle bats are still about with a few seen regular at last light over Foxhill. Not sure but I think they sleep through most of the winter when the supply of moths and insects dries up.
Hope you,re watching where you,re going when you,re bat spotting.

Haha. I try. I saw the one on Green Lane as I was sat waiting for someone to come up the hill!
