Even more Barn Owls!

We are lucky with how many Barn Owls we have around us but this weather is doing them no favours.

Gone Barny

Sorry for the Owl overload of late. The wind and rain has been awful the last few weeks and made hunting hard for the local Barn Owls. We are really lucky that one field nearby is surrounded by river bank and hedgerow/trees creating shelter for hunting and roosting, with up to 7 individuals using the field. There has been no sign of the Short-eared Owl- perhaps it's preferred area is too exposed.

Barn Owl

The last few weeks have been reasonable for Barn Owl photography but sadly, probably because they are desperate for food. However, ten in a mile stretch was remarkable. Look forward to trying again soon.

This Short-eared Owl showed well on the first two occasions. However perhaps isn't as easy as I first thought? Look forward to trying to get some more photos of this, one of my favourite birds, over the next few weeks. I famously say February is the best month for photographing Owls....

The Deeping Lakes Long-eared Owls seem to be mixing up their roosting sites this winter and using their old haunt of the Gully where the views are really much better.

More Otter action

We reckon this is a young dog. He performed well again over the weekend and this time the sun shone which made it much easier capturing the action compared to last weekend. This time prey items weren't just Roach, we also watched it catch Bream.

Otter in Sunshine

Remarkable what a bit of sunshine does.......
