Over the past 3-4 days I have been to Rawcliffe Moss twice to feed. Rather than post details twice I thought I would just give a brief summary of what was about. Yellowhammer numbers remained fairly stable at 22, but Tree Sparrows had increased to an impressive 208. The Corn Bunting flock near the barn didn't appear on either day and all I had were three birds near the feeding station. I had my first Fieldfares for a while on the moss when 17 flew from the Alders opposite the barn.
Below are a few pictures of Hawk Owl that my good friend Nigel in Canada sent me recently and I thought I would share them with you. What a stonking bird!
