This morning I saw 10 Barn Owls flying on my journey round my farms. Unusual to see so many so I am wondering why they have not been able to catch sufficient food in the long nights that we have at this time of year.
Everywhere I am feeding birds around the farn I have Bramblings, probably 150 birds in all. They are feeding with Chaffinches and Reed Buntings mainly.
I have one field of oil seed rape which the swans like, there are about 60 Mute Swans there each day and a few Bewick and Whooper Swans. Today there were 6 Whoopers and 5 Bewicks. They go to roost each evening on the reservoir in Baston Fen where the Terns breed if anyone wants to see them close to at dusk.
