Short-eared owl - Hoo peninsula 8/11/15

Todays survey started well with myself and Mo picking up a very late WHINCHAT along the entrance track to our survey site.  I can't remember ever seeing one so late before.

Further on we both had MERLIN on our transit, with two sparring over a meadow pipit along the seawall last knockings.

Star bird though was this cracking Short-eared owl, which showed very well on our return route.

Other birds of note were several groups of Lesser Redpoll, Water Pipit, Peregrine pair, double figure Marsh harrier and several Green sandpiper.

plenty of stonechat around still
