Following an afternoon spent scouring the woodland along the cliff path to the west of Sidmouth, which produced a Firecrest and a couple of Crossbills over, decided to try Otterton Sewage works... Here, the Short-eared Owl was seen in the distance being continually harassed by corvids. We had given up hope of getting a photo, but struck lucky as we headed back home, when the owl flew along the road and right past us in the low evening sun - beautiful!
