Barn owl (Tyto alba) out hunting. Arne, Dorset, UK. 08/07/11.
It steadily made its way along the fenceposts towards me until it couldn't get much closer.
One of the chicks was also visible perched on the nestbox ledge this evening.
Stunning Dom, absoutley stunning, this is your best shot I've seen yet...
Can you tell whether this is the male or female bird Rob?
Gorgeous photo Dom. We went along last night and saw it - wonderful, photos not good but will put on later. So yet another tick!
