Adders and Little owls (Updated)

Today I went out searching with David Nixon, first to an adder site where it was business as usual with eight females observed, six of which were clearly gravid. At a different site, two Little owls (Athene noctua), an adult and a fledgling were showing well as were a family of Sparrowhawks (Accipter nisus) in a plantation with at least four youngsters seen. Unfortunately they moved from tree to tree too quickly for me to get any photographs.

I have also updated the local species page to incorporate field work outings from 2014 as well as a more extensive photo gallery.
