Barn Owl at dusk 7th January 2016.

Having watched this barn owl at the weekend I knew when it was likely to leave its nest box at this time of year in order to go hunting.

So it was a simple matter of setting up the camera and waiting...... well not exactly but he did appear after a while and even better than the last time I watched, he jumped down from the nestbox onto a bough and preened for a few minutes allowing me some time for a few images. It was almost 5 pm and the light was very low but it's always a treat to watch one of our most enigmatic birds this close.

I'm not sure if it has a bad left eye or if it had just woken up!
