Friday, 7th March 2014: I have been cycling around wit a long lens recently, when riding in the Lodes Way area. I have managed to get a few pictures of short-eared owls (or as I tend to call them short-sleeved owls).
The good new is that the area is drying. This part of Headlake Drove has been a row of puddles up until recently. The trouble is with puddles is that it hides how deep the rut might be and whether then might be stones of sticks.

A bit further long Great Drove – a crop trial had been laid out in one of the fields.

I managed one half-way decent shot of a short-eared owl on my way back along Lodes Way – although it is a bit small.

Burwell Fen – no owls in that direction!
