Montgomery nighttime birding.

An interesting night time birding session with Paul Leafe and Tony Cross last night to say the least. A Barn Owl was caught and ringed, Short-eared Owl, 2 Woodcock, 25 Goosander, Goldeneye, Golden Plover, Tufted Duck and 4 Snipe seen in hills in northern Montgomery. An interesting and enjoybale experience!


  1. Unfortunately not Steve - a female goosander broke the net as it was being caught and in tyhe ensuing escape it flushed all the other Goosanders off the lake! SEO seen while walking miles back to our car as Tony got his 4x4 stuck in a bog. All others seen in the beam. Gives a different angle to birding ;-)
