Am thinking I might do a 2021 Bird List.  So started off today with trying to get Hawfinches in the wood - some luck, although very distant and flighty birds.  Also a Nuthatch.  And I thought I should pop off to Salisbury Plain briefly this afternoon (despite the poor light) to make sure I got Short Eared Owl on the list while they're still around.

Final Owls of 2020.  Short Eared Owl on Salisbury Plain on Monday, and our local Tawny Owl in his usual spot in the woods this morning.

Just the one Short Eared Owl this afternoon in rather misty conditions on Salisbury Plain.  Also, a Stoat.  And good views of a Merlin perched up, but couldn't get a photo.

Popped to Salisbury Cathedral to see if there were any Black Redstarts about - usually a good time of year for them.  No sign, but one of the Peregrines was about.

Finally managed to get a photo of the roosting Tawny Owl in the woods.  It's been in the same place for a while now, but shuffles down into the V of the tree when spotted.  When on my bike, it's always visible.  When on foot with my camera, usually hiding.

Also, a distant Hawfinch and a GSW.
