A barn owl flew over the A697 at Haugh Head on the 19th Nov. Another bird flew over the A697, at Canada Farm, north of Lonframlington on the 20th Nov.
Today has been spent walking large tracks of heather in the north of the County. There were good numbers of red grouse, most of which had paired up for next years breeding season. Walking off the hill (3:30 pm), a female hen harrier was seen flying quickly south and there was a small party of twite (32) which appeared to be feeding on soft rush seeds. A possible female goshawk was quartering a rough pasture. The odd bit heather was still in flower.
