Got here just before sunset.
No definite owl sightings.
although what could have.been a short eared
owl flew across as I was
scanning and landed on the ground in a dip so I couldn't see what it was
Lapwing were about as we're snipe(which seem to be more vocal after dark)
I swear I seen the white T of.a wheatear  in the field with the horses in.but is it a tad too early.?
