Long-eared Owl and Jack Snipe

1st February 2011 - bright and sunny/hazy WSW2/3
Early morning observations in poor visibility provided just small numbers of Common Scoter, Red-breasted Merganser and Red-throated Diver.
Wildfowl and Waders
A Jack Snipe was new for the year.
A final throw of the dice with regards to adding species for the BTO Winter Atlas again saw visits to several of the less frequented areas - the highlight a Long-eared Owl along with Little Egret and Merlin.
