Barn Owl from North wall, Pagham.

Yesterday saw me on a very sunny evening on the North Wall and whilst walking to Owl Copse to see how the breeding herons were coming along I suddenly became aware of a very distant Barn Owl at the far end of the fields adjacent to Honer farm. Unfortunately it was far to far away for any good photos but on one occasion it did hunt over the fields the other side of the Breech Pool and I took a chance and fired off a few shots....

No close up views and heavily cropped but really good to capture as I haven't seen a Barn Owl for some time and these were taken between 6.15 and 7.15pm....i.e. early evening (must have hungry young nearby)

Little else of interest but Black Tailed Godwits were feeding near to the sluice gate.

 In flight showed the black tail...nicely.

As I write this blog today it is raining and we need rain and so do the farmers...the place is parched.
