Rock and I were attending a bird-ringing session near the River Kennet when we saw this beautiful female Barn Owl hunting in a field just across the way. It was just too distant for me to get good hunting shots but I did manage to get some half-decent pics when it rested on one of the field fence posts.
Looking back to a post I made on the day of the 2015 General Election in the UK.
It would be appropriate to present a parliament of owls…but I don’t have one. What I do have are some shots of a baby Tawny Owl that we saw while walking through a wood in Dorset. My guess is that he will probably base his vote on environmental issues!
