At Last !
A garden tick! Managed my first garden tick this evening since last Octobers Teal, in the form of a LITTLE OWL*. I had initially seen it well from the top of the track sitting in a smallish Ash tree, so I zipped home, set the 'scope up and whacked it up to 60x and there he was still sitting in the sunshine! That puts the garden list up to 125. As I was watching the owl a Turtle Dove* zoomed purposely south over the distant wood - GYL 77.
