Owl traffic control had its work cut out Sunday evening. Six to eight Short-eared Owls up hunting / playing just after 3.00pm.
One caught prey and was pursued by another trying to usurp the feast although there seems to be a fair bit of 'salad' picked up in the meantime (that's grass streaming from the rear)

There's always the evil eye to ward off photographers but you wouldn't believe the shots I missed. I mean...........two Owls with talons engaged one upturned and no focus! Bugger!

Fly by's are easier although exposure is still a challenge.


  1. Great series. Really enjoying reading about your owls.

  2. What a cracking set of shots! Cheers, Seumus
