Just the quickest of posts this evening to say Ben and I are having GREAT success following our barn owls recently - the photo below is of Ben looking at last night's "Snow supermoon" on another of our (successful) owl hunts.
Also - please be on the lookout NOW for toads at their traditional toad crossings.
As I've blogged here once or twice (or thrice!) before, all the toads need in February or March (generally) is a little wet in the air and night-time temperatures to be over saaaaay 9C - and they're on the move.
Storm Ciara (or whatever) today brought those exact conditions here, so Ben and I went on our first toad patrol of the season at our nearest toad crossing and we managed to spot our first toad of the year and help him across the road.
