Barn Owl

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.

Election Day Special

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!
