Tawny & Leo at Chester-le-Street

Tawny owls dont get much of a look in round my way
ten-a-penny, not really worth the effort etc etc
but there again it is the new year & i suppose we should make an effort

well i looked at 2 likely trees (both neck-breakers), & the 2nd paid dividends...
i suppose the quality of the effort is matched by the quality of the image.....
and its tree:-
tree image needs turning 90 degrees anti-clockwise - the owl pic doesnt, its looking down at us on a 80 degree angle !

Anyway its nice to get somewhere different & out of the wind
Heres a Long fella roosting in a traditional location nr Chester in a Blackthorn & Briar tangle:-
There were probably several more close by in a large Gorse clump, but this one was easy due to loads of whitewash beneath the roost & visible from way off.

(dont know why these pics are going on side-on ? )
