TAWNY OWL Calling at Queensway Again

For the second night in a row, a TAWNY OWL was 'hooting' near Queensway at about 2.30am.

Later in the day 2 BUZZARDS were soaring between King's Langley & Bedmond.

Outside of Hemel, c.3 SWALLOWS were feeding along a hedgerow near Braintree, Essex in the evening.

[COMMENT: Lucy Flower said on the 19/09/11 that she heard a TAWNY OWL in Grovehill on two nights over the last week, at c.10.30pm. Probably from the small wooded area opposite Henry Wells Square on Aycliffe Drive.]


  1. Tawny Owl heard in Grovehill area as well 10:30pm-ish, two nights during the last 7 days. Great to know they are about.

  2. That's good to hear as I haven't heard so many Tawny Owls around Hemel in the last few years. Thank you for posting a comment.
