5 owls 4-toed, 2 hard....

I enjoyed a 5 owl day during the flat calm, sunny weather last week

Littles, Shorts & Long-eareds at 3 spots each
Tawny seen at 2 places

I managed photos for those 4 no problem, & was sure i would be able to 'snap' all 5

but the Barn Owl wasnt playing ball & by the time he'd shuffled, preened & generally dithered about, this was all my camera could manage....

will have to try that photo-assignment again...
hopefully,
theyll all be sitting as nicely as this :-

Long-eared  Owl - viewed & photographed from public footpath.

Hi Stevie.

What a day, and those LEO perched shots are absolutely brilliant.

If you'd only ended up with that last LEO image it would have been a great day - superb!! - but to have a '5 owl day' is something that I still dream about!! Well done!!
