Little Owl

As you have probably gathered by the title this entry does involve a Little Owl. A couple of days back I tried again to see the Barn Owl at my local bird club. I arrived a little early so I went back to the tree where the Little Owls had been seen, again I managed to see them, yet this time I managed to get photographs which was excellent.

Little Owl:


After photographing the Little Owls I went to the hide. On the last blog entry I enclosed a photograph of a Moorhen on a nest, I went back to the exact same sight and again I saw the Moorhen on the nest, yet the nest had grown almost double the size since I last looked. I was amazed at how much the nest had grown in the space of a week.

I stopped off again to try and see the Barn Owl but I failed this time, yet I did hear a Tawny Owl.
Overall a fantastic day especially having the opportunity to photograph the Little Owl.

Congrats on your Little Owl Anna. A much closer shot than the only one I've ever managed.

Hi Anna
well done getting the owl photo.

Found this today-a rare good news story about gorillas, thought you may be interested.

So glad you got to photograph the little owl, and the moorhen is so clear and beautiful looking at her through the grasses. Great capture!
