New Year...Barn Owl

It had been a long time since I had seen a barn owl so it was a nice surprise to find a hunting barn owl during my recent travels.I was travelling the back roads and quiet lanes in the Pilling and Cockerham area.The barn owl was very active and it was a challenge to follow and anticipate where it might perch in between flights.

I was quite pleased with my efforts the best of which are shown below.The weather recently has been awful with very dull conditions and very cold as well.I was lucky with the lighting on the day below and the barn owl was also taking advantage of the dry and bright conditions.I will definitely be back to see the owl again but meantime am confined to barracks as it has once again turned very wintry.Thanks for looking in and lets hope for a happy and healthy New Year.

  1. Excellent set here Brian.

    You mention Pilling and Cockerham, but I'll stick with Cockerham, and you have to wonder how many birds might be involved and showing in this area at the moment. I know of six seperate sightings since the Christmas period, which aren't necessarily all the same bird.

    Kind Regards, Pete.

  5. Great set of images, of a great species ... I'm impressed. It's been a long time since I have seen Barn Owls in wild habitat. I'm from Ontario Canada, and although they do exist here, they are ultra rare. BTW I came across your blog by accident while following a link from my personal birding blog.
