Various

Went to Thorley Wash Saturday pm to look for Barn Owl but drew a blank. Had to make do with superb Kingfisher, 4 Redwing + 7 Fieldfare, plus a Water Rail squealing as dusk fell. Sunday morning a ♀ Blackcap in the garden hedge.

My previous posting on Slav Grebe and BNG was superbly illustrated on the Portland Obs site. these are almost certainly the same birds.

In the absence of bird excitement another fossil; again, anything on the beach that isn’t an obvious pebble is fair game, and this one is (I think …) Myophorella Clavellata, a 150 million year old bivalve
