Lovely pictures Steve, of what must have been a wonderful encounter. Have the owls roosted in the same place before that you know of?

Stevie I am thinking of putting up some baskets in a conifir plantation near to where I have seen LEO's, any advice on type, size, height and location would be greatfully recieved.

Fabulous, but a little worrying to see these superb birds from a public footpath. It's a good job that they're masters at hiding themselves away - at least from the unitiated general public!

Super images Stevie!!!
