Longs at dusk

A couple of images of 2 Long-eareds shortly after emerging from roost at dusk. . Im reasonably happy with the first 2 pics - it was difficult enough to see the bird let alone catch it phone-scoping !

Cropped images taken from about 80metres away -iPhone 4GS hand held to 30x Nikon Fieldscope (85mm obj lens)

These 2 pics were taken on another visit, lighter & closer, but looking towards what bit light was remaining

At least 3 birds here, coming past hunting at close range. - although they seem equally happy to post hunt for spells. A Pair dueting tonight, before the male left to hunt.

Long overdue

Thought i'd have a go at resurrecting this blog

hopefully things can only improve by re-starting on a low note

this one looks like it simply fell of its perch

Luckily there were several more close by.

Heres a couple of random Little & Tawny shots from past few weeks :-
