Secondly, another new Little Owl site was located this evening, taking my overall tally onto 165 territories, soon be on 200!!! I was on my way to the "Wistow feeding site" to see if the Barn Owls would show again but as it was a little too early for them to emerge I opted to kill some time driving around the local lanes. I was making my way down a very quiet back lane near to Kibworth when I spotted a single bird in a roadside tree. I drove past, got my camera set up and then drove back very slowly. It was still there and posed nicely for me.
Then unexpectedly it was joined by its mate, the terrible light lead to these terrible images but I'm sure I will be back soon to improve on them.
