Another Owl...

I was on my way home after dropping some plaster off at the house tonight when I noticed an owl on the fence, near Howick Hall, not far from the site of last nights Barn Owl. I slowed up, thinking that I'd seen the same bird, but as I got close I was pleased to see that this time my fence sitter was a nice Tawny Owl. It didn't linger like a Barn Owl would and flipped over into the trees and out of sight...

A flock of about 200 Pink footed Geese flew north over Longhoughton this morning.

The past couple of nights I've seen a moth or two flying around and they looked like proper macros. I wonder if they are Pale Brindled Beautys ? I don't think I've seen one before but I see some of the blogging chaps have been seeing them on the wing now (Mostly Macro and North Downs). I might leave an outside light on to see if I can attract one...

I agree with Steve on this one.
Could well have been PBB`s, but like you say, there`s only one way to find out.

Ta chaps.

Warren - After I've attracted the Beauties I might go for the moths...
