Both 'SHORTIES' perform well this evening

Short-eared Owls (David Bilcock)
I went over there this afternoon, taking the walk from Wixams, only takes a few minutes. First SHORT-EARED OWL came up at 15:25, second at 15:45 and both were still visible when I left about 16:00. Superb light for viewing. One COMMON STONECHAT was found and also year-ticked a flock of flyover Lapwing and a couple of local birders (Andy Grimsey)
