Hel-leo, leo, leo

Long-eared Owl chick

Another evening wander around the fens found me at Woodwalton Fen in search of all things crepuscular and nocturnal. A good warm evening provided great views of Hobby, Woodcock and one young of a brood of four Long-eared Owls. Grasshopper Warblers were vocal and my second sighting within a week of Badger here.

Hobby record shot at dusk. This bird was slighlty brown on the uppers and the red trousers very washed out indicating it isn't yet a full adult.
