Visiting Tower Lodge in the Trough this morning, we heard a tawny owl hooting - 09.40, broad daylight - it must have been fairly close to the Lodge or across the road.

Pair of spotted flycatchers across the road possibly nesting at tree stump in the river bank.

Pied wagtails carrying food but didn't locate nest.
Grey wagtail.
Blackcap and garden warbler singing.
Curlews, oystercatchers, lapwings all disturbed by group of over 30 lesser black-backed gulls apparently foraging across the hillside.
Meadow pipits carrying food.

Very cold (12 degrees) and windy this morning.

1 butterfly - a green-veined white.
