Not much time for owling on Saturday, a very tasty hangover put paid to my planned early start, then I had an appointment down the city in the afternoon to watch the football, not much time left for anything else then? It's amazing just how quick a day can flash by and nothing seems to get done, however, as busy as I was I did still managed a quick visit out to check out three local sites where I made my first sighting of the year.
Little Owl site No 88.
At my site No 86 a bird was located sitting on some straw bales in a barn, I think it was hunting for mice? It was pretty dark in there which resulted in quite a noisy image (grainy in the shadow areas) because of the need to use a high ISO setting.
My site No 10 also yielded a first sighting for the year, a pair where out here but only one of them came close enough for a quick snap.
Goodness knows how many owls I could see in a whole day if I dedicated the time to doing it? Without the hangover of course, so not much chance there then because nearly every weekend is spent recovering from one!!!
