The End of Feb..................

Not been much happening for me since the Waxwings I did visit Linton Pond which was partly frozen only one Herring Gull and a small party of Black Headed & Common Gulls , Tufted and Teal common with a few Shoveller , white winged gulls seem to be very thin to say the least I have been to Blyth Harbour but no sign of even the Iceland ,its a bit of a lull and can't seem to get the enthusiasm to get out and about and when I do there is not much around.
In one of the brighter spells I did have a Barn Owl over and my fist full song Skylark with a couple of others just being half hearted about it .
A few moments before the adults had been chasing the young then another bird turns up landing on the ice and the family decide to give chase , the male climbing onto the ice and waddling across to chase it off
This Fox had obviously seen me before I saw it and sat wondering what to do !!
Run is always the result >>>>>>
Good to see Barn Owl out and about, it did catch prey , swallowed it so quickly and off again
