Awake, on tray, really itchy!

18:50 It is just visible on the middle beam
19:10 To the back beam
19:50 Now preening on the middle beam
21:01 He looked towards the exit of the barn but has decided to stay on the front beam for a little while longer
21:07 Left the barn
21:32 The excitable Flapper paid a three minute visit to the barn. It didn't make any calls.
On the tray. It then went behind the box and did a PS
Came onto the middle beam
Stood on the front beam for a short time, I thought it was going to fly down to the right as it was looking in that direction but decided to leave the barn
22:01 One in with a loud screech. Straight onto the front beam, stayed a few seconds and then left
23:35 No more activity. Goodnight

10.30 Caught the cam changing from colour to black and white, strange timing!!!!
20:00 Resting on the middle beam
Whilst recording Owly I noticed a little bird flitting around by than white bin ... asked YT to slow uploaded footage but no chance to see what the bird is!
Bit of a bonus in that we get to study Owl movements slower than usual ...
It's thought to be a Barn Swallow. I was watching earlier after the male BO left the box, warning calls from what sounded like two of them. It's all quiet now.
