    We’ve just recently moved, Mrs DTR grabbed me in the night last night and said “what’s that??” It was a Tawny Owl calling,it must have been right outside the window, it sounded like it was in the room

    An albino pheasant on Cunswick Scar (near Kendal)
    It was frosty so it was well camouflaged 😁

    Nice.
    If I'm informed correctly, males do "HOOO" and females "TOOWIT". So you can tell what sex it was. We sometimes hear a near one then one further away.
    No longer "resting"

    I reckon it was a pair then as I thought it was the same one going Hooo and Toowit, we thought the dog was ill and howling at first, I reckon at least one of em was on our satellite dish

    Have been thoroughly entertained this morning by a blue tit having a fight with itself in the wing mirror of my car which is parked adjacent to my window.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    What looked like a goshawk on the side of the M54 on the way home from the Wrekin. Unusual so close to the motorway but can't think what else it could be. Far too big for a sparrowhawk.

    Kingfisher on the canal just south of Adelphi Mill in Bollington yesterday. Then a flock of long-tailed tits in a tree next to me near Gradbach on today's run.
