Scatterdells Wood evening tetrad work (TL00L)

No record yet existed on the Herts Bird Atlas, New Winter Atlas of Tawny Owls in the TL00L tetrad of Whippendell Bottom.  With only 1 day left before the closing date I decided to leave after school at 8:30pm to search the area.  The weather was ideal with:
  • cloud 3/3
  • fog 0-1/3
  • temp. 1/3
and an eerie silence suitable for any calling Owl.  Scatterdells Wood was my best bet and on arriving I was soon glad to heard a single TAWNY OWL calling form the northern end of the wood and soon after a TAWNY OWL began hooting in reply.
