Minor rain stopped as a few of us headed out to the end of the fishing pier in mid-afternoon to have a look at the Snowy Owl that had been reported on the breakwater for the past 24 hrs. The owl had obviously been successful at obtaining food, as evidenced by the fairly fresh blood stains on its feet. The bird seemed to be having having a bit of difficulty nodding off though, perhaps due to the extra-enthusiastic and elevated human voices of some of us bird enthusiasts out on the pier - it succeeded in keeping me from dozing off, that's for sure. :-/

I also noticed a flock of light-brown, sandpiper-sized birds that twice started to land on the boulders below the Snowy, but ended up moving on - did the Snowy's presence change their plan ? :-)
