I heard reports recently that there were good views to be had of three Short-eared Owls at Farlington Marshes nature reserve. So I set out this afternoon more in hope than expectation of seeing them. I was to be pleasantly suprised as I saw a pair of them fairly close up hunting over the fields.
I took a short video of them flying and one later on sitting nearby in the fields.
I also took these shots of the owls flying in nice autumn light.
Later the sun drifted down, and in the poorer light I took a couple of the owl closer up in flight, and sitting nearby in the field.
