Short-eared Owl at Telegraph. Taken through the front windscreen. Over the past, I have seen up to 5 SEO from the wagon!
As I was driving down towards Newfordm the Short-eared Owl from last week at Porth Hellick, flew across the road in front of me wagon at Telegraph this morning. I stopped and watched it for five minutes as it drifted from one side of the road to the other. It briefly landed in a dead pine and then flew low out of sight towards Trenowth.
At Porth Hellick it was dull with a NW wind. Migrants were keeping low and on the pool the drake Tufted Duck and Sedge Warbler were still present. Nearby, the 4 Ring Ouzel had not moved on from up on the down. I was slowly walking around the loop trail, when I heard the BEE-EATER call three times overhead! I ran from out of the trees to see if I could see it, but it was not until over half an hour later that I located it flying briefly around the tall Elms at Salakee. Twice, I had already looked here, but there was no sign of it at the time. It went behind the trees and I never saw it again!
The 4 Ring Ouzel were still up on Porth Hellick Down
