The pair of SHORT-EARED OWLS were hunting the Backnoe End part of the airfield at 5pm. There were two male Wheatears in the Mount Pleasant horse paddock along Hatch Lane. Earlier at the Keysoe Row West gate, close views of a Barn Owl out in bright sunlight and the pair of Little Owls in their usual spot amongst the derelict buildings, plus another Little Owl in the usual Hatch End tree (Nigel Willitts)
