I made a very brief visit to my local patch yesterday. As I walked up the farm approach road, some House Sparrows and a male Yellowhammer were making a meal from the spilt grain on the road. This is the closest I've got to a Yellowhammer on my patch - not like on Cannock Chase!
I then went to check out the owl situation. There was a Little Owl in their favourite barn at my site No.12, even though it is nearly full with bales of straw now. This one is cunning! When he(?) sees that you've spotted him, he waits until you turn your head away (in this case, when I adjusted my camera) and then takes the opportunity to fly off unobserved!
This time I found where it had flown to, and managed my best image so far of a bird at this site - in a tree! My photo of the owl in the same tree the previous day was somewhat inferior (see previous post).
