Not strictly wildlife but Arctic smoke much in evidence at Longis Bay at approximately 1300 on the 18th Jan. This caused by cold air over a relatively warm sea.

In answer to post below - 'White heron' is most likely a Little Egret. They frequent Longis quite a lot. Thanks Walking Girl

White Heron? Friends with a Herrring Gull on Longis this week. Left side or Raz. The seal was around the Frying pan over the Christmas period too.

Small grey seal swimming into Frying Pan Bay. Gulls flying around its head (i think it had caught a fish).
It then swam round to Longis Bay (for which I followed), and was floating about the end near the causeway and into the shallows of the bay itself.

Barn owl flying out of some trees near Barrackmasters lane, whilst walking up Blue-stone just before Frank Dean's place. Great to see, as had not seen one for a couple of weeks.
Also a blonde hedgehog at the same time, bonus!

Water rail on the road by the railway tracks near Blanchard's. I had to stop the car to let it cross and noticed a cat stalking it. I positioned the car between the cat and the rail enabling it to disappear into the undergrowth going towards Blanchard's.
