As anyone who is a regular reader of this blog will know, just recently I have been playing away! I have been indulging myself with my guilty pleasure........Short Eared Owls. There is no hiding the fact that my head had been turned and my life long birding love, the Little Owl had definitely taken a back seat.
Well today it was a case of "better the devil you know" my long standing affair with the "little one" was rekindled, I was taking a day off work and what better way to spend it than catching up with my old mates.....that is if I could locate some?
I spent the morning over at a couple of known sites near to South Wigston, luckily enough some birds were located with the added bonus that the light was just fantastic, so no excuses there!
I've been trying to convince myself of late that the Short Eared Owl were a much more handsome and photogenic subject than the Little Owl............I think I may have got it wrong?
It was good to be back with the little "uns".
