Friday 13th June 2008
What is traditionally an unlucky day actually turned up trumps for me. A late visit (21:00) to the River Medway, nr Teston Bridge resulted in glimpses of a Barn Owl silently moving between nest boxes on the West Farleigh side of the bank, with a second calling from a nearby windbreak, a pair of Little Owls on the same bank and a Tawny Owl calling from the near the lock. Earlier a Cuckoo was heard calling (isn't this quite late in the year now?) and a low-flying swarm of Swifts passed overhead.
