Lincolnshire Barn Owl

Went to Lincolnshire this weekend for the first time in ages. Checked in with the Barn Owl on Saturday night, hoping he hadn't moved on (it's been months since I saw him last). But about half an hour before sunset he made an appearance. I managed to take quite a few shots of him - here is my favorite:

He did eventually spot me sitting in the brambles in my new camouflage jacket from wildlife watching supplies (looking pretty cool, I can tell you!). The camouflage seems to work well enough, he didn't notice me until he eventually heard the shutter going. This is as close as he's ever come!

  1. That's a lovely shot Nick of a Barn Owl in a very natural setting.
