A great shot Sylvia - Great to have these flying near you - good to see them - evidently there has been a sharp decline in Barn Owls

Thank you so much everybody for your kind comments and votes and a special THANK YOU to Richard (MossyOak) and Graham (Gray-ina) for the User Awards - really appreciated and valued. Yes Karen (kaz10), I think I have definitely caught the bug now - sat out for over 2 hours this evening but he didn't show! Ah well - there's always tomorrow Wink

A fabulous inflight capture Sylvia, you must be chuffed to bits to catch the silent hunter on camera. Many people have never even seen a barnowl in the wild
