Finally managed to get down to the Nunnery reserve to contribute to the 2011 challenge. Unfortunately, I rather doubt I added any new species (although I'm not sure anyone's written down Hawthorn yet?). Birds included a great flock of about 100 Bramblings plus personal year-ticks of Lesser Redpoll and Marsh Tit. The real highlight, however, was watching at least two Otters on the river. The adult pictured here was seen just briefly, running to the river, but a juvenile was watched for an extended period at close range; it seemed to be enjoying playing with an empty beer can!

Still failing to see the Barn Owl for my personal Nunnery List - must make the effort at dawn or dusk one day...
