In the Local Wood and Far Ings Nature Reserve.

A day of nice sunshine today saw me visiting the local wood to check out the Resident Tawny Owl. Today the owl allowed me to approach close enough for pictures while keeping a close eye on me from one of it's five roosts I've seen it using. I then retreated leaving the Owl to roost in peace. Then on into the wood following the sound of Treecreepers. Three birds at one pont were feeding and chasing around me as I sat on the ground in the wood. Onto Far ings and a pair of Blue Tits was seen checking out the nest box at the Monolith. I then walked along the humber bank to spend the last hour or so at Ness Hide,  A Marsh Harrier was flying low over the reeds, dropping into the reed bed on a few occasions while trying to avoid being mobbed by the crows. The Harrier didn't come close to the hide despite being around for over an hour. All in all a great day out today, even though I only managed average photo's.
