We were very lucky as when we walked down to where the owls have been seen one birds was hunting around the field and then sat on a fence post.
They are fantastic birds to see, beautiful colour patterns. AS we got nearer the bird flew off but was soon back and this happened three or four times. I never got close so with my 500mm lens my photography was purely for the record. It was also very dull so to get the speed I needed I was on high ISO (3,200).
A great day though, we also saw the White Fronted Geese on site, a fox and Pat saw a Kingfisher flying along a ditch whilst I was driving.
