Birding in Staffordshire and Leicestershire on 14th February, 2010

After one of Dave Scattergood's excellent birdwalks for East Staffordshire, at Croxall Lakes (on which plenty of interesting birds were seen - but beyond photographic distance!) I decided to continue my quest for Little Owls in North West Leicestershire. To cut a long story short, I didn't find any new sites. As the day, although rewarding from a sightings point of view, had also been disappointing photographically, I decided on a quick fix by going to see my local Little Owl sight near Packington, before heading for home. I was rewarded with the sight of both birds after sunset, and whilst there I thought about places to set up my portable hide for a photo session, when the weather was next suitable - see my next post!!!!

  1. Lovely pictures. I love the Little owls, they are so cute. Florence Nightingale use to have one she rescued when it was a fledgling. She use to carry it around with her in her pocket.
