Well i have had a fab night, firstly on the way there i head th yellow hammer, and then saw at least 30 long tailed tits there was loads of them. And when i got to the pond i saw the garganey again which was class. But then after all my bad look of trying i saw the barn owl!!! It flew so close to me and so low if i had my cara i would of had the most amzing shots. I watched it for a goo 5 minutes then it went down and i didnt see it again, untill i walked past the pond on me way home, i saw it in the south farmers feild to the pond, was abit further away though. So i am one happy birder right now.

And although i saw some nice birds like gs woodpecker, female lesser redpol, greenfinch and my faveorite bird the treecreeper and many more, but this week i have loved seeing all the mammals i have seen, theres bin loads. Rabbits, brown hares, roe deer, feild mouse, cumbrian red sqwirels and my faveoite sighting of all was of a wild bagder, it was so cool to see this mammal in the flesh since i have read seen and heard alot about the badger. So that was really great.
