The other most noteworthy species seen during the day included a Long-eared Owl at Cristin, a Short-eared Owl, a Richard's Pipit, five Black Redstarts, a Redstart, two Ring Ouzels, a Lesser Whitethroat, five Yellow-browed Warblers (two of which I trapped and ringed), a Firecrest and a Snow Bunting.
Good numbers of thrushes saw 76 Blackbirds, 13 Fieldfares, 25 Song Thrushes and 158 Redwingsscattered around, whilst singles of Spotted Flycatcher, Woodcock and Great Northern Diver were also recorded.
This stunning Long-eared Owl was flushed to the North of Cristin and managed to find its way into the only net open at the time, opened to catch the YBW below!
The Lesser Whitethroat showed some characteristics of Asian origins, any comments welcomed.
