Last evening was glorious beautiful sunshine little cloud a total contrast to the grim start in the morning.
The evening before had been too windy and there was no sign of the SE Owl although I did see a Barn Owl on my way home. I first saw the SE Owl in this vicinity on 2 April. I am told there is a pair and I heard another report of a SE Owl just a couple of miles away yesterday.
I confess last night one of the birds I wanted to see was performing brilliantly quartering up and down the road. The only problem was that I was the wrong side of it looking at it directly into that brilliant sun light.
I took quite a few shots but focusing and everything else proved real difficult in that light. Here are a couple of the half salvageable efforts. I hope to get another chance. I confess I tweaked the last one in Photo Shop, I think it's probably no better.
I have also seen a Little Owl in this area twice this last week.
