Until recently I’d never seen a barn owl in the flesh but watched one in very poor light hunting whilst at Bempton cliffs. They are beautiful birds to observe quartering over their chosen hunting ground. On Sunday I saw my second one and this time managed to get some, admittedly poor pictures.
It’s bad news when the best picture you have of a bird is its back end as it flies away. These are definitely ones to file under “Record shot” and the barn owl has been added to the target list.
