Little Owl- I went out one evening this week, near Monyash, looking for Skylarks which have been up and singing there all week. As so often happens when looking for something, I saw something else- this beautiful Little Owl. So well camouflaged among the limestone, I would never have seen it if it hadn’t flown. Springwatch has a camera on the nest of a Little Owl this year. They are sometimes seen in the daytime although they are mostly crepuscular (dusk) feeders and this one was setting out to hunt. Conditions: Cool weather has given way to a hot sunny spell. Temperature: Max 22- Min 10c.
