Entry added by: Andrew King on Thu 22nd October 20, 09:10pm Sighting location: Garth - Upper Chapel road. Sighting date: 22/10/20
Always worth a stop in the laybys N of Drovers Arms, Epynt. Today on scanning the grasslands, a dark round head appeared among the pale tussocks at distance. Fortunately I had the 'scope with me - it turned out to be a Short-eared Owl which when it moved its head the strong wind raised its ear tufts. 3 Kestrels and 6 Ravens on the skyline.
