I had not been to this site before and it was a few years ago since Ken also visited so we opted to park where Ken knew. On arrival we found ourselves standing at the opposite side of the field to our friends. Was this to be a good move??
Whilst scanning the area with the bins I spotted a Barn owl inn the distance but it seemed very happy just sitting in the hedge. The sun was out and it wasn't long before Ken shouted Owl, I was so happy that they at least showed. More and more owls started to appear but they were still distant and favouring the other side of the field. We stood around hoping we would be lucky and one would fly our way. As the afternoon went on we noticed that some of the owls had moved to the next field and this was closer for us. I managed a few shots but they were still large crops. The good news was that there were plenty of owl and it was just amazing to see them hunting.
During the week I managed to take a few hours off work and treat the wife to see the owl :)
The weather was not as good as the weekend but I was hoping it would be quiet. This time I opted for the other side of the field and found the track to get there. We had only been there for approx 30 mins when the wife said "Owl". Great they were out again. They came alot closer this time and I managed some better shots. Again I could stand there for hours just watching them, what a great bird.
As i write this I am getting ready to visit again this afternoon, lets just hope for good weather and a close view of them.
