Today I received a report from John Tordoff a bird watcher who’s local patch is Dewsbury Country Park.
He told me that during the last few days there has been a Short-eared Owl at the country park. He had a good but distant view of the owl this morning before it moved off further into the park.
Given that the country park is only about 8 miles ( as the owl fly’s! ) it maybe worth keeping an eye out in our area! Fingers crossed.
