Those familiar with the Somerset birding forum will have seen reports of multiple sightings of Short-eared Owl and Hen Harrier in the Kinsford Gate area. I visited the area late afternoon yesterday, with weather cold cloudy calm and dry, and had 4 SEOs and 2 ringtails, although more were seen by other observers. The Devon/Somerset border does in fact run through Kinsford Gate SS740366, and whilst most of the activity was on the Somerset side of the border, some was also on the Devon side.
