Short-eared owl


Just a quick post to share some photographs of a Short-eared owl (Asio flammeus) from today. I spend a lot of time photographing these owls on my locals moors in the spring and summer when they are breeding but in winter they usually leave for coastal areas and foreign shores. Today this owl was resting in the grass after eating a vole and thanks to Katarína for calling me over to it’s whereabouts and then to Brian who very kindly allowed me to use his 800mm lens to photograph it. Thanks Brian!
