Took the opportunity today to nip back to Bagworth Heath over lunch. No further sign of the Long-eared Owls (not unexpectedly - they weren't seen on Sunday morning and no reports since) but good to get back in the habit of walking around with bins instead of a net! Excellent close views of c10 Lesser Redpoll in a small mixed finch flock, plus a nice Reed Bunting, a Meadow Pipit and Green Woodpecker. Nothing too exciting but good to see after the prolonged indifference to birding. This site really does look to have some very interesting habitat - it's grown up a fair bit since I first visited in 2000. Must be worth a moth trapping session some time.
