Thursday 3rd November 2011
It was one of those dull November days when you don't expect anything out of the ordinary to turn up on patch - no bins, no camera - just a trudge out into a wet field. Therefore I was extremley surprised when I a Short-eared Owl flew up from one of the alleyways between the strawberry beds. It landed a short distance away but was immediately mobbed by the resident crows and again took flight but this time moved high north , gaining height as flew towards the Medway Gap. I immediately phoned Phil Sharp and John Clements, but unfortunately neither of them were able to connect with it. A first for site, and a cracking patch record!
