Twitch & Joke - Little Brown Job

Nah, nowt to do with any wobblers

This evening a trip to Shibdon after calling in to collect some pay on route.

The view out the shutters

this one definately beats Foghorn Leghorns as worst Spotted Crake image, but i get a bonus point for young rail in background

Little brown chicken-thing

as Rolph used to say . . ."Can you tell what it is yet ?"

Crake was active till 20:30,

Thankfully not all the birds were that distant

Others seen included:-  4j1adWRail, 1Garganey, 5Egret & 65Cormorant roosting in trees, singles of Oik, Snipe, Greenshank & Redshank.

A fine sky at the days end

Pulled in at Lamesley on way back
A Barn owl hunting 20:45- 21:30, between Church & Pub, often close to road, allowing good views.
Also 2Little owls

Little Owl keeping out of the rain on the way through

Heres a good gag :-
