You can't have too much of a good thing!

I suppose I really should try to do some other subjects, but with Owls performing very well at several of the sites I regularly visit it is difficult to tear myself away; although I did go to shoot aircraft at Luton and ended up with more Barn Owl shots, so perhaps they follow me, as opposed to me following them! I did get some Short-eared Owls this week though!

Barn Owl addict!

It will come as no surprise to regulars here that I have been concentrating on Barn Owls again, I'm addicted to everything about these birds. I cannot explain just how good it is to have days like today has been, I have seen lots of Barn Owls today and thoroughly enjoyed just watching them, the images are the "icing on the cake"!
See my Flickr gallery for lots more!

I'm having a moan!

A mountain of images shot this week, the Barn Owls have been the key target species, but as the weather conditions produced some fabulous sunset and dusk skies I have been shooting them too.
I also visited Salthouse again for the Snow Buntings, fortunately most of the time I was there the other photographers were people with at least some common sense, unfortunately there were also some people there for a while with no fieldcraft, common sense or consideration for others; chasing the birds around, talking in loud voices and making more noise with clanking tripods etc than "a one-man band clog dancing on a tin roof" these pratts spoilt it for others by making the Snow Buntings nervous and jittery. I usually moan about dog walkers, but in fairness dog owners are not aware of what we are doing, their passing-by is generally quite quick and the birds soon return. Idiots with cameras are exactly that, idiots!
