Just the one Short Eared Owl this afternoon in rather misty conditions on Salisbury Plain.  Also, a Stoat.  And good views of a Merlin perched up, but couldn't get a photo.

Popped to Salisbury Cathedral to see if there were any Black Redstarts about - usually a good time of year for them.  No sign, but one of the Peregrines was about.

Finally managed to get a photo of the roosting Tawny Owl in the woods.  It's been in the same place for a while now, but shuffles down into the V of the tree when spotted.  When on my bike, it's always visible.  When on foot with my camera, usually hiding.

Also, a distant Hawfinch and a GSW.

Went out looking for Crossbills and Owls this morning with no luck.  But did see this Grey Wagtail in rather nice light at one of the ponds in the wood.

I've been out in the woods a few days now searching for Crossbills - and finally managed to track down a flock of 6.  Rather distant, but now I know where to look I'l be back.  Also found where a Tawny Owl is roosting in the day (spotted 3 days in a row), but impossible to photograph it seems.
