Version 2IMG_9380IMG_9384IMG_9388IMG_9387Barn Owls- just back from Norfolk and Suffolk, where we had some great walks and nature-watching, including stunning, incredibly lucky views of a Barn Owl at Cley-next-the Sea. The best view was one morning and probably due to the wind and hail that visited us at intervals! Barn Owl feathers are not very water-proof so they will hunt voles, mice and insects in daylight if weather conditions have been unsettled. Magical to watch, it is thought their white under-parts form an ‘anti-silhouette’, the lightness making them less visible to prey, from the ground. More facts, and less clear photo’s tomorrow! Conditions- After a cold spell, with snow showers in Sheffield, so they tell me, a milder spell is on its way.
