Sudbrook/Passage wharf

Main Sighting: SEO
Med gull Ad again, the owl was hunting but was being mobbed by a Carrion crow and towered up into the sky for several minutes to avoid it before two falcons joined in, a peregrine and a smaller bird which I did not identify, trying to keep my eye on all the action. The owl seen briefly later.
