Long-eared Owl youngster enjoying the sun

Some pics of a youngster enjoying a bit sunshine :-

A fat sleeping lump

Giving a passing Willow Tit the evil-eye

Waiting for the end of the day.....

Yesterday evening visited a country estate on edge of Durham City

A pair of Long-eareds with 3 young out & about - the eldest an accomplished flier - its siblings not quite as skilful - one hanging from rabbit-netting fencing, beating its wings furiously untill it clambered to the top, the other doing its best to perch on the top strand of barb wire - comical to watch.
A couple of roding Woodcock & Little Owl with inquisitive juvs out of the nest too.
juv Little Owl - spotted me at 80 yards
