Thurleigh Airfield this evening

Two Short-eared Owls on the airfield tonight. I had access so one would not have been visible from the footpath around the perimeter. The other however was hunting near the control tower. Take the footpath north to the fence from TL058596 and scan. The bird tonight would have been visible from TL050599.

Also a Barn Owl here.

Spoke to some birders who had seen two SEOs here in the week and Tawny and Little Owl.
