Uskmouth

Main Sighting: Little Owl
Very little else to report, the usual hedgerow birds, several Cettiā€™s calling, Reed Buntings, some Tufted Ducks and Canada Geese, a Cormorant and a first winter Scaup on the scrape by the visitors centre (reported but out of sight when I was there). But a Little Owl back in the usual broken tree and apparently has been around for a couple of weeks was definitely the highlight of my visit!
