More of the same

Well that proves Short eared owls will avoid hunting in high winds if they aren't starving. After last weeks show Sunday through Tuesday was a disappointment as the winds howled around the Carr. Then today as the wind dropped and it warmed up there they were again from 4.10.
Quite active and in various poses and habitats
With careful observation and the help of a Carr regular visitor the conclusion was five birds present.

  1. I got out of bed at 4 a.m. on Sunday to head up to Dru area before sunrise but it was wild outside. God knows what speed the gusts were reaching. I knew it was a waste of time heading out so instead of just going back to bed i decided, as it was on, i would watch England "playing" one day cricket.
    God, how i wish i had gone back to bed.
    It's an ill wind.
