Barn Owl by train

Finally, after many journeys spent staring speculatively out of the train window – a Barn Owl, seen hunting just west of Glynde village.

A couple have been reported close to the A27 between Lewes and Brighton in recent days.

The swelling daylight is now making travel at the beginning and end of the day more interesting. Last week I saw my first egret-by-train of the year, poking about in a field just outside Lewes.

I’m still holding out for something ridiculous and instantly-identifiable – say, a stork or a crane. And I’m not talking about the heavy machinery at Beddingham roadworks.

Ah well. In the meantime, here’s some rather good footage of a Barn Owl hunting (sadly, not mine).
