Barn Owls again

Went out to the Barn Owl site again and took the girls who were suitably impressed. A Black-headed Gull appeared over the fields at about 9:20 and flew in a confused state around the site, at one point one of the owls chased it. The gull seemed to be considering roosting in the fields, the behaviour was interesting as it appeared close to panic. This was an adult, I presume it had got flushed from its "proper" roost or was on the move and couldn't find a suitable roost.

I've added a new link to the blog, Bracknell weather charts. These are very useful charts, nice and clear, highly recommended to seawatchers and other migrant hunters.
