Croston Finney / Croston Moss late afternoon

Post by Mike Greenhalgh » Sun Dec 28, 2008 8:13 pm

Very quiet afternoon. Small numbers of Redwing, Fieldfare and Lapwings. Wren and Goldcrest along with various Tits.

Watched a Barn Owl for 15 mins between Sumners Lane and Spa Well Lane. It came with 30yds of me on Mosds Lane then flew off towards Alma Wood.
As it approached the wood, 2 Buzzards came out to mob it. Thats something I've never seen before

I saw the barn owl too on 29th Dec in the field off Moss Lane (the one that leads to Finney Lane via the level crossing)
