Short-eared Owls: how could I resist?

With a grey, gloomy sky and an hour to spare, I parked by Halvergate Bridge and, within minutes, was treated to reasonable views of a Short-eared Owl...

During the late Autumn / early Winter period, I despaired of adding a photo of these beautiful cat-like birds to the blog, so I'm making the most of the post-Christmas influx!

Absolutely beautiful birds David. Remember seeing half a dozen or more in the sky at once in some winters the way they sometimes turn and look at you when flying.

You're absolutely right, Chris! They're like flying Siamese cats!
