I was out with Steve H for half an hour this afternoon once the wind and rain had died down.
We went to West Hartford for the Short Eared owls, which have been seen recently.
After only a few minutes watching in the field behind the pool, a Short Eared hovered close to the ground before landing. It put its head up and looked at us with its yellow eyes before lifting up and flying around the surrounding area.
Not much on the pool apart from the two Shellduck, Teal and Gulls.
Went to Arcot briefly afterwards but nothing new there, anyway good views of the Short Eared was good enough for me, back to coursework I think.
