Still no Wheatears up by us Dave. Birds are waiting for the weather to change perhaps?

About a year ago a Little Owl at the rocks just past Catty had trailing left wing. Thought it had had it but you never know.

Interesting about 'trail wing' I guess its the same bird, it looks healthy enough, had no problem flying and the local tit flock were certainly not happy with it's presence. Will look out for it again!
