10th Jan Owl Fest

Well i think i broke the speed barrier tonight trying to get to Soddy with enough light to see some Owls that Keith had spotted last night but firstly on the way home i managed to spot the typical shape and flight of a Little Owl as it  flew along the A66 between Embelton and  Cockermouth. 
Keith and I had split up tonight Keith covering Broughton Dump and myself covering Soddy.
I had 2 Barn Owl fighting and a Short-eared Owl
Keith had 2 Tawny Owl and 2 Short -eared Owl... i still need Tawny Owl so that will be my stop hopefully tomorrow if i get the time. 
So Weather and time permitting same again tomorrow.  
Also at Soddy I had 240 Goosander and Greylags flew in after dark, I could hear Teal and Snipe.
