A New Little Owl Site on 7th March, 2010

As it was beautifully sunny, and I had started to think that it would be a good idea, for my records, to take some pics of my little owl sites themselves, rather than the birds at the sites, I set off on this mission. My first port of call was my site No.1 at Staunton Harold (no bird seen). I could not resist stopping to look at a tree that I'd identified as a likely one in a different part of the estate, and yes, I'd got my eighth LO site! I can't get near to it until I get permission to go through the electric fence - something that I intend to try and do tomorrow. On the way into the estate I took a few shots of the pair of Shelduck that have been resident this winter. I visited three other LO sites, but only one had a bird visible.

  1. How do you do it Richard, you will have to let me in on your secret, very well done mate on your eighth site.

  2. I had a good mentor - that's how !!!
