Nuthatch and Blue Tit at Eyeworth Pond in the New Forest last week.

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.

Also, a nice Kestrel - perched up.

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.

Spent a few hours on Saturday on Salisbury Plain.  The Merlin is still about, and still difficult to photograph.  But some nice mixed flocks of Fieldfares, Lapwings and Golden Plover.  Some photos of these, plus a Kestrel, below.
