29th June

Illogan: My second new sighting this week and only my second this month, but probably the best of my lockdown sightings, Barn owl. This is only my 3rd sighting from the house in 7 years. This one however passed within 5  metres of my lounge widow, crossing the front garden 3 metres above the ground. So please update my lockdown score to 46. (David Williams)

Illogan: I have been waiting for Great Spotted Woodpecker for some time now. They usually turn up here after the chicks leave the nest, probably just in time this year.
Please update my lockdown list to 45. (David Williams)
