Feb 2nd

Couple of visits to Carlton Marshes this weekend. Saturday was quiet but Sunday saw me seeing a bonus Little Owl in an ivy covered tree by the silos at the car park. I didnt think I would see one on th enew patch, tho they were at the same spot last year. I had looked a few times this year with no luck but Jane texted that she had seen it and I was straight there. Thats the great thing about patch birding, even the common national birds such as Nuthatch and Little Owl give you a buzz when you see such scarce patch birds for the year. Tried out the camera a bit more as the sun was out and was particularly pleased with this Robin shot:
