Great pics Kieth - we went to Upton to see the barn owl. It has been showing very well, up to the awful weather!

Very quiet for the "normal" bird(s)...no King at all but fantastic for Mammals...Fox in field edge by entrance then into the reeds after spotting me.
It showed up later by the edge of the pool then spotted me again.
3 Deer on the edge of reeds in mid distance all morning ...at 1st resting up then a walk about and feeding.
Lots of Wrens and Robins in the field to the left and at least one "chat" flicking around on the floor and up on the top of stems....wont say what this one was as no positive I.D. from that distance.... here's a quick cropped pic....

1st visit this year and freezing with part of the water slightly frozen......not a lot of action from 11-1pm.
3 Buzzards
2 Moorhen
4 Mallard
Female Stonechat (reported)
2 Wren
loads of Corvids around as usual with plenty in the Rookery.
Kestrel female in tree behind duck pond.
Nice Fox with large bushy tail with black/white tip sitting watching all around and me before leaving to behind end of pond.
Great to meet the couple in the hide who have been about 30 times without us meeting...lucky them...lol

And.....many many thanks to the young couple ( first timers) in the Range Rover who put wood under my wheels and then pushed me out of the mud...it was frozen when I got there....that's twice running I have been stuck there so have to find somewhere else to park up from now on....
