Patch Asio...

A visit to the patch for a couple of hours after work today,saw my first Short-eared Owl of the autumn,and my first patch bird since last spring.It gave good but distant views,hunting in the wet pasture field.Also in the same area were 3 cracking Barn Owl's,which gave great views,watched catching several vole's.Other notable sightings included a flock of 207 Pink-footed Geese which flew in from the direction of  Read's Island and headed roughly east towards the Wold's,no doubt to find a Sugar beet field to feed in,a pair of smart Stonechat,60 plus Fieldfare and a single Green Sandpiper which was feeding in the Soak Drain.An enjoyable few hours.
