Bird & wildlife sightings from the Barnsley recording area.
Thursday, 25 February 2021
No sign of Bittern tonight, but a Tawny Owl showed well. Today's highlights were Treecreeper, 2 Kingfisher, Cetti's singing, 21 Herring Gulls, and a 'Redhead' Goosander came in at 15.45hrs our first of 2021. (R. Laverack/D. Standish)
The usual Canada & Greylag Geese and a male Pochard. 4 Ringed Plover on the ash plain + at least 1 in the Symphony compound (Les & Andrew Corrall).
The very mild conditions yesterday prompted me to put my Actinic light trap in the garden. It caught the plume moth Emmelina monodactyla and Pale Brindled Beauty.
