Male Pintail at Titchwell
The first of many Barn Owl pictures. Due to the recent bad weather Barn Owls have really struggled to hunt properly which is not good news. However, now the weather is improving they are back out in force, we saw 7 during 1 hour of drving from Titchwell to Cley, it doesn't take that long to drive from Titchwell to Cley but we had to constantly keep screeching to a halt in the car to photograph all the barn owls! Many of them were perched on posts in fields, we saw 1 perched on a road sign and a couple hunting alongside the road, breathtaking stuff and my best ever Barn Owl experience...
Adam took this one as i was driving! It takes alot of skill to do this!
Some of the 11,000 strong flock of Pink Footed Geese at Holkham
More Cley Barn Owls
We also visited Salthouse in the hope of seeing the 50 Snow Buntings who reside near the car park and often get fed by various locals and birdwatchers. When we got there an elderly couple pointed us the direction of 1 lonely bird who seemed intent on waiting for someone to feed it! We duly obliged and it was very grateful....and so were we! It came within 2ft of us!
We ended the day at the Stubb Mill Raptor Roost at Hickling Broad. In total we saw over 20 Marsh Harrier come into Roost, these 2 Cranes also flew in...
