Short-eared Owl: Some days you win - last Friday I spent all afternoon watching and hoping for a good shot of a shortie with no luck, however today my luck changed!

Today Garry and I headed past all the Sunday birders and crowds of twitchers who were gathering around the old baths car park and donkey stands flash and headed up towards the golf course.
I had been told that this area is the best place for the SEOs as they have been roosting on the ground near here.

This tip paid off as in the end I think we had at least four maybe five individual birds, and three at the same time, looking at when we saw them and comparing the distances.
