The Little Owl (athene noctua)
A very charismatic bird that seems to hunt and patrol with all the enthusiasm of the larger owls. He may be found in locations similar to the larger owls such as old or empty farm buildings but is equally at home in woodlands. Long established in this country and widespread in Europe.
Hope you enjoy him.
Most grateful thanks to all members who spared the time to c/c on the Red Kite. Most gratifying. Particular thanks are due to Carol (carolG), Jason (jasonrwl) and Ray (ray330) for their very generous UA's.

A first class photograph of this delightful bird. I see one occasionally in our local country park but never close enough to take a picture. He/ she is usually out in the open so trying to sneak up is virtually impossible.
