Hoots Mon

At 2230hrs last night Josh alerted me to a Tawny Owl hooting loudly from the wood in the back garden. Only the 2nd record for the garden, the last being in November 2008.

Great Northern Diver and Newts in the Pond

On Sunday stopped off at Bough Beech Reservoir and finally managed to see the juvenile Great Northern Diver that has been present since November last year. This was a new bird for me at BB and my first for 2 years.

In the garden pond, 2 newts were seen and the introduced frog-spawn is started to hatch. Whilst in the garden the first Harlequin Ladybird for the year was found.
