Not one, but two ! A walk along the footpath beside Titchfield Canal can give you one of two things reference birdwatching; a good day or a bad day and this day was a good day ! I’d seen one Barn Owl there both last year and this year some two weeks earlier and after […]

Squacco Heron

Rare Heron, Rare Bird I’ve been very lucky over the last few weeks with Herons.
