Black rock/Passage wharf pill

Main Sighting: Barn owl
At approx. 5.30pm tonight a Barn owl flew past me north quite fast over my head, it dropped 150 yards past Passage pill but, by the time I raised my binns it had disappeared, possibly going inland. I hope the two local birders I met shortly before this read this for info.
