The Last Post

This will more than likely be my last post of 2012.The weather is still very disturbed and it is unlikely that I will venture forth until the New Year. Despite the wettest summer on record I have managed to get out on a regular basis and have enjoyed some memorable outings with the camera.I will finish off with yet more owl images.This time the short eared owl features as it hunts over the rough grasslands where plentiful supplies of field voles have kept the owls busy for a number of weeks.A typical hunting area is shown together with close ups and more distant images of the owls as they quarter the rough grassland.Thanks everybody for looking in and I wish you all the very best for 2013.

  7. Brian. Thanks for your many postings over the past year or so since I discovered your blog. I had a stroke back in July which severely limits my birding exploits but blogs such as yours gets me through the tougher times and lessens lengthy gaps between trips we now make. Your blog is inspiring us to get out there and enjoy the winter birds moe often.

  8. Let's hope the weather is better this year - I certainly hope so - it has been the wettest year ever! Just letting you know that I've used one of your beautiful stonechat images for a little study, if you'd like a copy just let me know :-)

  10. Hi Brian

    Must have missed these when I was in Scotland for New Year. Brilliant images, especially the first, I think with the foliage in the foreground. Very nice to finally 'bump into' you the other day.
