I was greeted this morning by a nice surprise...a Short Eared Owl on top of a small hawthorn behind the Breech Pool along the North wall...........
Unfortunately I had only taken a smaller lens but here are some big crops..
Apart from that, a Pheasant on a fence...
and a Blackbird having a bath.
..and feeling better for it, obviously!
Earlier, on the Spit I checked to see if the Ringed Plover was still sitting on its nest in front of the hide....that was!!
I was relieved to note the plover was still there!
A sad sight but a necessary one.....wretched vandals, weekend party goers, rough sleepers etc.

It will be missed.
