Barn owl ~ South Brent

A good start to March with a close encounter with a Barn owl near South Brent, close enough to see that it was an un ringed female.

Around and over the garden 30 species including one Lesser and two Great Black Back Gulls, three Siskin, male Bullfinch, Raven, Wren, 35 Chaffinch and 13 Starling.

Almost continuous movement of Redwing flocks once the rain had stopped, initial count of 28 followed by 67, 40+, 29 and late afternoon a counted 84 birds.
