Short-eared Owl, North Cornwall. 27th Dec 2018.

After numerous visits to the North Cornwall coast I'm really pleased to get this Short-eared Owl in the late afternoon sunlight!

Xmas present to myself!

Very windy and only shots were of one of the Owls sheltering from the gales!!

Short eared Owls... Round 2. 4th Dec 2018.

I had another hour with these birds today but it was raining and the light was awful.

However they often came close and the photos are ok if you don't look too close!

2 birds were present and at one stage they did a bit of displaying together but only as the sun had set.

Hopefully they'll stay there till the sun comes back to Cornwall again!

Short eared Owls on North Cornish headland. 3rd Dec 2018.

Well, it was my turn to have a go at the Short eared Owls that have moved into the County.

Having drawn a blank a few days ago I saw the clouds part at lunchtime so decided to go again!

Not too disappointed with the results considering the fading light which forced me onto high ISO's.

There was a golden moment at about 3:30 pm when the light was perfect but no birds!

Also amazing to watch one of the birds going across the waves very low ... looked a bit odd for an owl!

Hopefully they'll stay around for a bit longer so I can get another chance.
