Friday 28th December
Last night, coming off the ferry, down beside Blackrock, we saw a Barn Owl out hunting, on the wing in the darkness. Great!!!
Today has certainly been a catch up day over here, having a cuppa with friends Distillery Dave, George E Jackson and his wife Pat. George has been busy ringing more birds here at home in our absence. Yesterday was a special day for George, as he caught and rung a Merlin in the mist nets. The image below is of George and the said Merlin..
