A Swallow zooming around the playground at lunch time today was nice.
Less nice was the Short-eared Owl that appeared around the Shunan when we were driving away from home on a girl mission. Pleas that we should turn around so I could get it on the from the garden list were drowned out with howls of "Dad, no!" So that species continues to evade my list. Earlier attempts this morning to get SEO and Bonxie on the list were also failures.
Interesting Pink-footed Goose movement this evening from Marwick Bay with flocks heading north, flocks were: 150; 21; 17; 52; 41; 180; 120; 15; between 19:00 and 20:00 when I was back on girl duty so I couldn't linger.
