Geeez, now that's what I call a windy day, normally conditions like this are absolutely useless for seeing owls, I nearly didn't bother going out last night, but there are always exceptions to the rules!
My site No 87 was where I finally saw an owl, it was located huddled low down in the bottom of a hedgerow keeping out of the gales. I couldn't managed a clear shot because of the wire fence in the foreground!
In time a total of five owls showed themselves, they were very confiding too. At least four of them were juveniles from this years brood. They seemed to be more focused on keeping out of the wind than they were of my presence! They spent most of their time sitting on the fence posts that were on the sheltered side of the hedgerow.
Below is an image of each one of the five owls (I think!).
Just before I left the wind got up to howling proportions, it was at this stage that three of the owls dropped down to the bottom of the hedgerow to gain more protection, shame about the wire in the way as it would have made a rather nice image!
