Roadside views

Prestwicks pair of Barn Owls have been out hunting most evenings this week around 5.45pm preferring the fields alongside the Dinnington to Prestwick Road and some motorists may have sen them as they perch occasionally on the roadside fences. Hopefully the birds are fully traffic aware and seem unconcerned by the passing vehicles.

Despite the closeness, photo opportunities have been limited due to the overcast weather and abysmal light conditions but I did manage these poor shots on Tuesday as one of the birds caught prey and flew off to consume the same.

Unfortunately all the action shots are blurred even at 1600+ISO. Wednesday -Thursday night has been pretty grim so if the weather clears it's likely the birds will be out early again this evening.
