2 short-eared owls giving close views from brading old seawall this evening, unfortunately i'd walked out to bexley point before they appeared at 16.30 and then by the time i'd got back there they were down. they came back up at 17.20 but the sun was below the downs then. the female marsh harrier came in to roost in the usual spot. best of all was a bat feeding on the river, was the best thing i've seen in a long time. gutted i didn't have the slr, the videos dont do it justice. other mammals seen were 3 foxes, hare, red squirrel, but blanked on badgers at a set on the walk home, shall try again there in spring. sky looked great, 2 planets close to the moon.
