Barn Owl....but not quite!

Here a few pictures taken at Moor Lane, Maulden, Beds of a Little Owl. This little chap lives in an old barn and was a real treat to see! However it was after 4.45pm so light wasn't on my side, hence the slightly poor pictures, great to see though and i will definitely go back to see him again! Enjoy!

  3. Definitely need to go back and set up a hide or something, apparently he is always in or on this barn! But no-one seems to see him with a mate?

    Paul/Richard....would love to do a whole day's Little Owl hunting/photographing with you guys!

  4. I'm sure we can sort that out, I would suggest we wait a few weeks so the weather settles, there is a bit more daylight and the male owls are setting up their territories(they will be easier to see) how about the middle of march, wk ends best for me but I'm sure Richard could show you around in the week if that is easier?

  6. Hi Ben - it's always a pleasure owling with Paul. I'd be happy to join you both if you get together. As Paul suggests, I'd be more than happy to show you round up here if Paul isn't available when you want to come. Amongst my few LO sites, I've got one very reliable site (working on finding others), and I know a couple of Paul's.
