Saint Mary's Lighthouse Nature Reserve

There are 3 could be 4 short eared owls that seem to be living in the fields behind Whitley Bay caravan park, they hunt those fields and the nature reserve.

Been showing very well for the past 2 weeks, park in the first section of the lighthouse carpark and use the patch that runs between the back of the caravans and the nature reserve.
