The first Short eared owl of the spring to get on the garden list was across the garden the other night. It soon headed off to the back field to hunt over the rank grass there quartering for a while before heading off. The Short eared owls are becoming more obvious now as the season progresses. I was on the Bigswell road the other night staking out a sight that may hold a Barn owl when I saw to of them quartering the same ground. They eventually met and a great argument ensued providing some fine but distant views. Eventually the split and went their separate ways…..very entertaining at the time tho!!
