birding mid to late July
Walked to Woodoaks farm where I met Paul Frost in the orchard I had a brief glimpse of Little Owl.I or we were waiting for other nocturnal visitors.
We had a brief glimpse of Barney but he did not stay.
Some two days later Paul Lewis and I were at Lake Park in Hayes where a confiding Red backed Shrike gave slightly distant views for the camera .We met Ephraim Perfect a young birder not a name
to forget and a nice lad to boot.
Returned to Woodoaks again but alas only the sun going down over Lady Walk Wood.
