A quick stop off to see if any owls were showing, I wasn't expecting much activity as these strong winds we are having of late tends to keep them down. To my surprise they were up, the light wasn't very good for photography so I opted to just watch them for ten minutes or so.
Then the horrid grey clouds broke and the sun shone through, to coincide with this a solitary owl was quartering nearby and getting nearer. In a mad rush the camera was soon out and then the owl approached near enough to rattled off a few frames.
I couldn't believe my luck, normally when I visit this site there has been loads of preparation and hours of waiting, but today I guess it was a case of right place at the right time!
I'm chuffed to bits with the outcome, just goes to show how some nice light can really enhance an image.
