June 26th - 2010

Aldborough Hatch Riding School, Fairlop:
  • Today visited the Little Owl's for the 3rd night this week, and saw two of them out, and hunting and maybe one Juvenile, since the other owl was calling a lot, and alarming especially because of a wondering fox, the time we went was between 8:30pm and 9:30pm which seem perfect at this time of year.
  • Also there might be Green woodpeckers nesting as we constantly saw two of them flying in and out of the same tree.
  • Counted 30+ Swifts (Alex Blackman)
