New Garden Species

Last night as we sat outside enjoying the balmy weather with friend Mark Lynton we were all astonished to hear a Tawny Owl calling loudly from the pines near our terrace.  My friend Ron Bennett has heard this species at Autignac about an hour to the north-east of us but I have never heard or seen it here before.  This brings the garden list up to 118 species. 


It has been a dull but still warm day.  A Pied Flycatcher still seems to be about but it was late afternoon before anything significant was noted.  High up in the threatening clouds 7 Honey Buzzards and a Peregrine drifted south.
