13-14th February 2017

A quick evening walk at Canons Farm on 13th in a bracing easterly was rewarded only by a day-hooting Tawny Owl and a single call from a Little Owl. Today, a morning walk around Banstead Woods produced busy feeding flocks of 12 Siskins and 50 Lesser Redpolls. I also paid a short visit to Juniper Bottom, on the off-chance of finding Hawfinches, noting two Marsh Tits and another day-hooting Tawny Owl (this seems to be an especially regular spot for hearing Tawnies in the daytime).
