Knackering week

Toooooo much work ...... so no birding or blogging 'til today.

Nice Barn Owl on the way to work on Tuesday.

On Wednesday as I was heading back to work in the late afternoon a large flock of Lapwing were panicking across the road, the panic perhaps caused by some crepuscular raptor activity (unseen). In the end the flock of about 150 exploded across the front of the car in a blur of white underwings. This was all the more effective as "Diamonds from Sierra Leone" was blasting out on the stereo producing one of those rare but wonderful combinations of birds + music (especially rare now that I don't have any spots where I watch from the car).

Thursday morning and I had to almost stop the car on the way to work in the morning as the Barn Owl got up from the verge. Nice.
