Thank you to all those who commented and voted on my last upload,also a big thank you to TonyNG for giving me his UA,all very much appreciated,
A barn from last winter,i spent most weekends in Lancashire watching and waiting for a chance to get shots of these beautiful birds,there was actually 4 owls at this site and on one occasion when we were there a buzzard attacked and killed one,we were speechless at seeing this in front of us,

John.

Lovely shot of the owl, you patience was obviously well rewarded. Do we get to see the photos of the buzzard swooping in for the kill?
