Staying on track

After a couple of mishaps (luckily minor) with the car in the decidedly dodgy conditions, we decided to stay firmly on clear roads today with a thorough inspection of car parking spots! Louise said she'd like to see the Long-eared Owls at Fairburn...so who was I to argue! Sunnier conditions tempted me into a few more shots one of which revealed an orange eye (just!)


Moved on to Old Moor for some lunch in the Gannet cafe (always worth a visit). Still restricted access here, but we managed to find a Brambling at the feeding station, it was much closer before I got my camera from the car...


Finished off back in the village looking for Waxwings. No joy though. Russell Slack had 15 on Willow Drive this morning...thanks for the text Russ.

Lucky you, I wish we had some LEO's down here, do you want to tade with some LO's? I'll offer you 3 to 1! ;-)))
