The Barn Owl (tyto alba)
One of my most favourite birds and an absolute delight to watch him/her coursing the hunting area in search of unsuspecting prey. I very much hope you will enjoy looking at him.
Until recently Barn Owls were thought to be endangered species thankfully they are starting to make a comeback.
Many thanks for all c/c's given to the Heron. Very generous of you.
