More Barny action

Don't get many days like today (24th Jan) has been, 2 B-1B aircraft had diverted to Mildenhall and were due to leave at 11a.m. they actually left about an hour later than the rumour mill had suggested, this meant that my planned whiz up to a good Norfolk site would be cutting it fine timing wise, so I opted to drive back through the fens in the Outwell, Manea, Chatteris area.
Wow, I saw 7 different Barn Owls and a SEO two of the Barn Owls were not at all camera shy, and I ended up with some of my best Barn Owl flight shots..... oh and the B-1B pictures are pretty good too.......

Owls on the prowl.

Its that Barn Owl time of year again, I saw 17 in total between Bedfordshire and the Norfolk coast during just the one trip there, the route I usually take through the Fens is always good, so far this year its possibly as good as its ever been with several Short-eared Owls out on the prowl too.
I also enjoyed photographing some common species coping with the ice and snow, the Moorhen looks like a speed skater!

A bit of Ice

A busy start to the year, having just finished processing all the images for a couple of books I can get back to updating the web pages and hopefully finish off the main website too, I just seem to run out of time and get a bit square eyed with all the computer work.
During the Christmas/New Year period I did get out and shoot some images too, the ice, snow and frost was very nice, we don't get enough of it.

Waxwings appeared in Biggleswade yesterday, just the two, but they were posers and the light was fantastic.
