Clocks changed with a colder morning & less birds !

Two Short-eared Owls were on the reserve most of the morning with one departing inland over the docks inland. Grounded passerines were thin on the ground but included the usual suspects for the time of the year with a very small number of new Blackbird,Goldcrest, Blackcap & Chaffinch on site plus a brief visit by 18 Long-tailed Tit.
