After dropping my partner and her friend at Mexborough I took the back road back to Goldthorpe.

Goldthorpe Common

115 Barn Owl

I have been checking this area from my car as they are building houses on what was last year a great place to view hunting barn owls.
Having not seen any for many months I was delighted to see one hunting in an adjacent field and over an area of old railway line and rough pasture.
I will be keeping a check on them when posssible.
