Staines Moor: 23 December

A couple of hours spotlighting this evening proved very productive with 2 Barn Owl (NE corner), 1 Little Owl (north end), 1-2 Jack Snipe (east pool and south end), 2 Eurasian Woodcock (1 south end, 1 north end), 5+(4+H) Common Snipe (including 1 on the ground in the torch light for a change), 2 Red-legged Partridge (NE corner, a Water Rail heard (Bonehead Ditch in NE corner) and 1 Red Fox. An almost full moon prevented getting close enough for photos though.

Spent some time searching for fungi in the afternoon when the following also noted: 1 Golden Plover (flew off NE from the west side calling), 3 Water Pipit (Colne), 6 Little Grebe (Colne), 5 Stonechat (3m, 2f), 3 Goldcrest and 1+ Kestrel.
