Barn Owl flight

Just a short trip out Tuesday evening. First I went out along a route where I have been seeing Little Owl in the last few weeks. I soon realised that the leaves have now opened up giving great cover and for light with trees either side of the road I need to be earlier when the sun is higher.

I then went down another local road where Barn Owls have always lived in a dilapidated old shed. Last year I never saw a Barn Owl all year until Oct/Nov and then I think it was a Barnie in East Yorkshire.

Anyway I was really pleased to go down there in good light and see two birds flying around the area. I was maybe only there 30 -40 minutes and got a few shots, a couple were half decent although not showing the spectacular colouring of their feathers.

Canon 40D, Sigma 50-500mm lens, f7.1 1/2000sec ISO 400, focal length 417mm

Great shots Mike! I haven`t seen as many of these birds this year as I have on previous years, hopefully that just means that I have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, rather than a population fall?!
