  1. Just to check -- where's the best place to look for Little Owl at Farmoor? Also -- I'm assuming Barn Owls are being seen near dusk, presumably over towards Pinkhill?

  2. Sorry Steve I do not know as not really a Farmoor regular. Maybe ask Dai as he goes there every day

  3. super grebe shots ewan. steve the barn owl hunts the whole stretch of the meadows alongside the western edge of f2 in broad daylight as it was yesterday.i don't know about little owl.
