Just appalling weather today, it is always a shock when the rain comes after a prolonged cold spell and it rained all day today. Mrs B and I headed out in the afternoon to Farhult. No sign of the long-eared owls at the roost but they were probably tucked away in the depths of the spruce. The number of pellets here was unbelievable. A walk along the beach produced just three meadow pipits! We were soaked.
