Barn Owl

Well, we really thought that we'd struggle with this one if we didn't pick it up whilst the males were out day-hunting and provisioning females, so you can imaging my delight when this appeared in my inbox from RSPB photographer Andy Hay this morning:

The Lodge, 21st April.
A Barn Owl crossed over the B1040 from the reserve at dusk (flight line from between the gate house & the fuel dump across to the former hemp field).


  1. Would the bird list be higher if the hemp field was still in 'production'?

  2. In what context do you mean 'higher'?
