Today was bright, sunny and mild .... until I left work. I managed to grab about half an hour in the square late afternoon and picked up a few more. Best sighting today was not a new square tick - a superb hunting Barn Owl tonight just drifting along in front of the car for c300 meters, stopping every now and then to hover over the verge.

I also noticed this on a line of motar in a brick wall whilst looking at lichens again. Can't work out if this is some sort of bizarre lichen or if there just happened to be some crystalline crap in the mixture (click for big).
