7th Feb. Short-eared Owl

I went for a walk along the South Swale LNR late this afternoon noting the brent flock on the arable appeared to have doubled in size, now looking to be a thousand strong including the 'white' one.  Nothing much else but on my return I saw a short-eared owl appearing to either come out of the grass behind the 'Sportman's' beach huts, or came in low off the sea, which I doubt. It then landed seventy five yards out in the field onto a small up rooted bush but then disappeared from view whilst I got my camera out!
