Lovely shots of Short Eared Owl from Andy Bate today - he ventured over the Ribble into the Fylde to visit Pilling on Monday, and came back with these great shots.
Always a risky business striking across the water to the north, I've heard dragons live there.
Over to Andy then, for his adventure into the heart of darkness....
PILLING IN A H-OWLING WIND
Had a trip over to Pilling on Monday (1.12.08) as I had heard reports of some SEOs about the place.
Called into Preston on the way to get a Waxwing tick! But no photos, hailstones don't do the camera any good!
Having never been over that way birding before I didn't know what to expect, but what a place...
7,000 Pink Feet in the fields
50 Golden Plover
50+ Fieldfare/Redwing mixed flock
3 Short Eared Owl
Great shots - thanks Andy!
Link to Andy's site is on the right.
Not much else to report today - two Grey Wags in Formby Village this afternoon and a Greater Pecker nearby.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
