Barn Owl Bonanza!

More of the owls later, for this morning we were watching Hen harriers, Common Sandpipers, Chough and Lapwing. Then to the coast and strand for Little and Arctic Terns; fabulous. By dusk we headed for Gruinart and listened to five Corncrakes and watched a Barn Owl hawking for over 30 minutes! Then we saw another and a Tawny Owl popping out of th ewoods, dropping down to take a mouse and head back in. With bats flying too we had the most amazing day!
