Owl and an Osprey

Dungeness - 0800hrs - mild, showery, sw 3 - We slogged across the shingle from the lifeboat station to the Obs and back via the Desert, where a flushed Short-eared Owl was the only bird of note. Overhead passage was negligible with just a few finches and Mipits on the move. Grounded migrants were absent.
Lade - 1000hrs - The Osprey, which has been hereabouts for at least a week, was sat on the wall mirror with a flock of Magpies. The Osprey was also noted at several other sites across the peninsula today, including the bay where it was seen to take a flatfish.
