The Tawny Owl (strix aluco)
This is the very same bird that figured in the last shot with him peeping out of the gap in the log. He appeared to decide that the world at large was quite a safe place and hopped out for a better look !!
I think he is really a very handsome bird and I hope that you will also.

My ever grateful thanks to all those who gave time to c/c the last posting and particular thanks to Nikki, Brian, and Louise for the UA's. Pm'd them privately.
