Witcombe Monday.

Continuing the hot streak (if indeed, last weeks Common Tern constitutes a hot streak) at Witcombe, this evenings visit saw two Green Woodpeckers flying through, one Green Sandpiper probing the far shore ('Heron side') and most exciting of all two Little Owls. Both calling, approximately 100 yards apart. Only saw one; a decent (if colourless) view through my scope at 40x as it sat on a bare branch in the rapidly fading light. A most unexpected year tick. Number 167.
