Considering the poor weather conditions in the last week or so it hasn't been too bad for owl watching. Most sites I visited yielded nothing, and that wasn't really a surprise with the persistent westerly gales of late. However the odd site was productive and in every case it was a matter of locating the birds on the sheltered/eastern side of a hedgerow.
Due to the high winds the birds were reluctant to move which resulted in getting nearer than normal. In all cases the images were attained from the mobile hide (the Landrover), which was good as it offered some nice photo opportunities (images below).
