I cant comment on the owl pal, but I like the story.
In reply to Graham c:
@Dave when you said " you heard little owls nearby" what noise did they make.Barn owls do not hoot
I found this article that could be of interest.
In reply to SunnyKate2:
So pleased you can enjoy so many different birds,in their natural habitats, they all have wonderful and interesting behaviours.
The Peregrine is one of the fastest when diving for its prey travelling at almost 200 mph( I am an oldie so use mph CHOL:):)
I enjoy being blessed with being able to watch many birds via the prolific abundance of web cams.
Keep enjoying and reporting, and hope someone may reply with some answers for you.
forgot to say wonder if little owl was catching moths on the wing.
We're very lucky SunnyKate2. I, too, find Peregrines very exciting birds. We had a young bird in the neighbourhood a few years back and he/she did a nice showy flight out of the lake and back... I genuinely (and my eyes were better back then) couldn't quite keep him/her in focus in my bins. Very fast indeed.

The Pirate said:I can't work out how to start a new post so have had to jump on this one.
Hi Pirate, the easiest way to start a new post is ………...
1) Click on the Wildlife (blue) tab where it will list latest posts
2) On the right hand side you will see "All forums in Wildlife" ; for a general post on birds/wildlife select first title "All Creatures ….. " which will open up a page with latest posts for All Creatures
3) On the blue bar at the top you will see in white +New Click +New and you will be able to create your new post typing your main title in the subject box and then start your thread in the main box underneath where you can add your photos.
***. (for ID help you will see "Ask an Expert" under same right hand column as All Creatures... ) and the process is the same as above by clicking the +New box to start your question/post
If you get stuck with anything else or posting pics/video clips, just ask and someone will be along to help.
