Be on the lookout for a very obliging Barn Owl in the Seaton Carew area.
Last night it perched on the fence between our two houses and at one point went into my kitchen and landed on the table. It appears to be an adult female, has no ring or jesses, but it is not alarmed by people as it approached me and nibbled at my arm. It seemed to spend the night on my garden bench, but was gone by the morning. Thanks Andrew for waking me for this remarkable garden/house tick. Photos to follow.

Jon...ref your possible crane sightings..I was driving along Kirkleatham Lane in Redcar towards the Business Park roundabout at 7.30 yestarday morning.I saw what I dismissed as two Herons flying over Kirkleatham Village.As the birds were flying away from me heading towards Marske/Skelton way, it was hard to get a good look,when I arrived at the ICI roundabout the birds were a fair distance,not quite a  side on view  but couldn`t see the usual snake like neck.Not a positive I.D
