Barn Owl and a Kingfisher

Barn Owl, Tyto alba
On January 15th I visited Arundel WWT and saw several Snipe opposite the Scrape Hide. A flock of Long-tailed Tits flitted around the open reed bed hide. At the end of the reedbed walk near the woodland feeders a Kingfisher perched on several trees and the fence.
  On 17th I looked for fungi near Findon and found several that need identifying.
On Monday 18th I visited Arundel WWT hoping to see the Barn Owl that was reported emerging from the owl box on Saturday. I got lucky and saw it emerge at 3:45pm.
