Chiffchaff,14th March.

I only called in at Marston because Trev Lee had heard a little owl calling earlier on.I’ve never seen or heard one here before so went for a look.I still need it ! Standing at the back of the works,I then heard ‘chiff-chaff-chiff-chaff’,what a joy.I located it and it started calling strongly,occasionally singing.

Ironically I then saw a treecreeper-Trev’s bogey bird at Marston.Also 4 goldcrests,50+ pied wagtails and a sparrowhawk.

Found a good few owl pellets beneath some thick scrub,I’ll be keeping an eye on that.
