Grey Phalarope

 
As the Summer is now well and truly over most wildlife interest is now with birds. Today I called into Tide Mills where the delightful Grey Phalarope was performing for several observers. Fortunately Matt was there so I was able to borrow his lens for a few shots.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Following this Pete and myself called in at Southease, walking along the river towards Rodmell. 2 Kingfishers and several Buzzards and a calling Water Rail were the main interest until near the end when a Snipe and then a Barn Owl appeared. The Barn Owl took off from a bush and then flew over our heads circling around 5 times only about 15 feet above us and screeching at us each time it passed over. An amazing experience!!
