Bull Island:  I spotted a Short-eared Owl on the Bull Island at 1pm today. I spotted the same bird in much the same spot two weeks ago. I first spotted it on Nov 3rd just in the grass embankment where the causeway meets St Anne's Golf Club. Today I spotted it near the ninth hole on the same course in the long grass in the mudflats.JT
