Long-eared Owl

What a fantastic find tonight, a juvenile long-eared owl. A cracker of a bird !

8 Spoonbills at Alkborough Flats, Lincs

Decided to go to Alkborough Flats this evening for a change so headed to the hide so we didn't get bitten too badly. Was surprised at the little egret count of 22, the most we have ever seen together there. What made the evening was the 8 spoonbills that flew in, landed in the dead tree and then flew around. A fabulous sight. We decided that we must visit Alkborough alot more often !
