Late last night coming home from Port Charlotte, we had a Barn Owl on a fence post at the roadside. It's great to see them close at hand, and really quite unfazed by you being so close. Thinking back to one night last June when we out listening for calling Corncrakes, and that time one flew along side us as we drove along. We actually thought at one point that it was going to come inside the van, so we hurriedly closed the window up a bit!
Last night too, and George was saying that he had 6 Long tailed Tits in his trees, and a few Greenfinches at his feeders. Greenfinches are not that common to George.
