   Mon 12 Jan Masked Owl Margate
   Seen in Old Bernies Road, just past Tabors Road junction in small
   section of the road where we regularly see small bats at dusk. It gave
   a small shriek as it flew into the open above the road, then landed in
   a roadside tree. After locating it, we had a short look with the
   spotlight before it moved away.
