SHORT EARED OWL

I was join last night by marc who fancied a go at the barn owls,with the weather taking a turn for the worst so we headed off,i just knew it was going be a blinding session,soon as we arrived a barn owl was sitting in full view great start for marc
we had over a hour with up to four different barn owls,but the icing on the cake was just about to happen,i notice a dark bird sitting on the post,long eared i said to marc as we got closer marc called short eared,had to be quick to gain some shots as they never stay still that long




with the rain still pouring we called it a night both went home chuffed to bits superb night welcome anytime marc to join me again

DOWN IN ONE on a AMAZING NIGHT

I was doing my normal owl watching and came across this very confinding barn owl, which was post hunting,first time i have seen this bird very confident not phased by me at all,some nights i see zero birds,but other nights i see up to five hunting,but that is in, a all night stop over,i can be waiting hours just for a single shot,but last night it was just superb
hun
as you can tell it was raining very hard,but this bird kept going the kill was over in seconds
it was down in the grass like a flash killed the prey then in a split second shallowed it whole only managed to grab a few shots of this amazing bird in hunting mode


it was a pure privilege to watch this bird at such close quarters amazing night which i will not forget for a very long time
