The dingy, chilly conditions didn't stop a Red Kite drifting over in the afternoon. A redpoll, a Rook and nine Mallards also flew over. Two Barn Owls put on a good show as they quartered the meadows, the first one emerging at 16:20; meanwhile, four Little Owls and a Tawny Owl proclaimed themselves.
