This evening I visited a site where I had only ever previously seen 1 bird on two separate occasions and that was when it was almost dark so no images to speak of.........so far! Although I haven't mentioned it yet, I set my self a challenge of seeing at least 50, YES 50 different little owls this month. This was the reason that made me make the effort and get out there tonight even though the weather was just appalling, dark, windy and very wet. Nevertheless it turned out to be a fine evening for little owl sightings, although I make no apologies for the poor quality of the images because I can't do anything about the low light levels!
I didn't have to wait long before I located this bird sitting in a nearby ash tree, excellent, my first proper image from this site. Although difficult to see it is actually sitting on top of its nest hole entrance, small or what?
He moved around from perch to post and then to a stump giving me some different photographic opportunities.
