A trip to Romsey this morning to see if the Hawfinches were still about.  At least 8 there, and very active first thing in the morning.  But a very dull and overcast day.  Still managed to get a few shots.

Also, tried to get some shots of the Hawfinches drinking at a puddle, but tricky - they seem even more nervous when drinking.

Back out on Salisbury this afternoon for the Short Eared Owls.  Nice, still day.  Three owls showed well from about 14:30.

A light dusting of snow on Salisbury Plain this afternoon seemed to bring the Short Eared Owls out to hunt.  I found two, hunting together, from about 14:30 onwards.  First time I've properly seen any out on the plain this year.

On the way to Mark Ash Wood in the New Forest this morning, saw this Buzzard feeding on the ground near Fritham.

At Mark Ash Wood - large flocks of Chaffinch and Brambling, with 2 Hawfinch amongst them.  Very timid though, so no photos.
