14.12.15. Short-eared Owl, No.5 tank, Frodsham Marsh. Ray Atkinson (3)

Just a warning to visitors in cars. Yesterday (Monday) I drove along Moorditch Lane and hit a pothole or something in one of the puddles on the road. Burst my tyre and I ended up stranded on the top road until 8pm when a tow truck finally came to take me away. (Locking nut wouldn’t come off so the wheel couldn’t be removed unfortunately). On the plus side I was there at about 5pm and saw the Short-eared Owl flying. Masses of lapwings too – probably several thousands. Didn’t managed the Teal unfortunately.
