They've been showing now for over a month down at Aust Warth which is more or less under the Severn Bridge on the English side, a lot way from you I know Ray, but it proves they're about.....Cracking image BTW.

Nice shot of the owl but I'm afraid you've overdone it with the poor selection and gaussian blur in PS to defocus the background. You didn't need to, or if so, then just a tad.

Hi mixpix the background is untouched apart from a little noise reduction.
