Winter outings

On Saturday I ventured over to Lincolnshire to see the annual gathering of Grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) when the females come ashore to give birth to their pups. This week over 1500 pups were counted along this beach. Closer to home, two short-eared owls (Asio flammeus) have arrived on a quiet stretch of local moorland for the winter which have kept me busy for a couple of evenings.

Although no amphibians and reptiles around I am already thinking about the Black-headed bushmaster I’m going to catch in Costa Rica in March 😉
