Barn Owls

I have visited a site of a pair of local Barn Owls a few times recently, sometimes drawn a blank more often than not seen them in flight at a distance. On one occasion a couple of weeks ago one Barn Owl I managed to photograph at too great a distance on a far post, then a lot nearer on a piece of tree bough but still a little way off.

Another occasion a Barn Owl was quartering a grass pasture and then it landed on a post but I was in my car the wrong side of a hedge.

Finally I got lucky, the Barn Owl was approaching the same grass pasture, I scrambled to a gap in the hedge, I took a good number of flight shots but the Barn Owl landed in front of me on the post and I managed a couple of frames before it moved on.

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running
off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let
you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.

Cheers

At this time it seems like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform out
there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Hey there fantastic blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a large
amount of work? I have virtually no knowledge of
computer programming but I was hoping to start
my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off subject but I just wanted to ask.
Thank you!

I leave a response whenever I appreciate a article on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
Usually it's triggered by the passion communicated in the post I browsed. And on this article "Barn Owls". I was moved enough to drop a comment ;) I do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind.
Could it be only me or do some of these remarks come across as if they are left by brain
dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I
would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.

Would you make a list all of your shared sites like your linkedin profile,
Facebook page or twitter feed?

The cost sounded wonderful but as in all items if it appears much too very good to become genuine it possibly is.
Expressing that the activity experienced handed him by, and
he did not have any regard for someone who didn't know the many matters he understood and couldn't get fights any more.
Now anyone has read that just before numerous situations at their Martial Arts faculty, but until finally you might
have essentially carried out it inside a true combat, you don't actually consider it.

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.

Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

May I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual who truly knows what they're discussing online. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren't more popular since you surely have
