Sat Feb 4. Not birding today, except for watching Redwings and Fieldfares in the garden. John Yardley has texted me from Morton Bagot to say that the Tawny Owl is showing. The bird sits in a tree hollow near the main pool and is sometimes visible in the early morning.
After a frustrating week stuck at work I am looking forward to getting out tomorrow, although the snowy forecast may put a spanner in the works as the country roads leading to Morton Bagot can be treacherous for a birder to drive to. I thought I would post a colour drawing of last weekend's Corn Bunting.
