Light side of the moon / Barnie

a Big Moon

Barn owl catching items every few mins in an area of natural regen on the woodland edge
obvious & eyecatching here, white on green . . .

not quiet so obvious . . .
plumage merges perfectly against the Limestone

even with white facial disc on show, the bird still blends in with its surroundings.

Limestone caves, cliffs & craggs being one of the species natural homes before man began building barns !

Short Vid showing nervous adult leaving the nest chamber . . .
3 fox cubs below had all 4 pairs of Little Owls up in arms, making a right racket

Young growing well, adults making the most of the good weather, bringing in prey items every few mins.

It didnt get dark, the sun was replaced by a big bright moon, casting my shadow - it felt someone else was walking alongside.
