(Bump)

Took the dog to Somerford Common this afternoon and managed to see a couple of Little Owls. I had the camera with me, but couldn't get a good shot. I really need to invest in a longer lens.

I came across an elevated bird hide too, so might be good for twitching if you're into that kind of thing.
Are you sure that is what the "hide" was?  I believe it to be an elevated position for deer shooting!!  At least that is what I have seen it used for!!

Well, it's a hut on stilts. I guess it could be used for either purpose.

I saw that on Twitter (appropriately) Very nice spot. They're not even that easy to find in Southern Europe these days (in my limited experience)

Saw a Cream Coloured Courser once. Not it wasn't my Dad's old motor either.  Cheesy

Hard-pressed British soldiers swore they had seen angels, ghostly archers, even St. George himself, riding to their aid near Mons in August 1914 WWI.

That's a cortina! My old man did have a lovely BROWN Cortina in the late 80's. When you could still pick up a "runner" for under 200.

In all seriousness though, a Cream Coloured Courser is a genuine bird I've been apparently lucky to see (I'm no twitcher but I do like the more colourful birds). This looks a bit Sandpipery/Bantamish

Bill Oddie in a bird hide this am.
I was looking for a Knot or a Wryneck - my twitching is almost as bad as Town's defending  Crying
