A local Barn Owl this afternoon. It came out, flew once round the field, landed on the fence, hopped onto a few posts then dived into the long grass behind the fence. Obviously caught something and ate it behind the fence rather than popping back onto a fence post. Then it flew into the tree and went to sleep. It was still there when I left at 5pm with the light gone.

Such a great set of pics Bob showing those lovely colurs we never get to see on webcams, maybe a female looking at that strongly barred tail!

gaynorsl said:Good to see Bob, this morning when out walking I picked up an owl pellet to give to my Grandson - I thought it was good, he wasn't so impressed!!
Hopefully it will change :)
