Short Eared Owl

Visited Goldcliff lagoons this evening just before dusk.The tide was right out but i thought you never no something might still be lingering.Two Spotted Redshanks and 40 Avocet still on the first lagoon.Thirty plus Lapwing and two Pintail from the third platform overlooking the second lagoon.I wasn't going to bother walking around to the sea wall but decided to as i had thirty minutes of light left.Just as i started walking around a Short Eared Owl flew up from the grass bank and landed thirty or so feet further along.It flew up once again before i could get my camera to my scope.In the end i just took a few long range pics as it carried on down the bank.
