|Barn Owl, Marston Marshes, Norwich - June 2015|

Birding Advent Calendar - 13th December
In mid-June I did several evening visits to my local patch of Marston Marshes in west Norwich. I was very fortunate to have some excellent close views of a Barn Owl as it hunted. I had tucked myself away under a tree with the setting sun to my back. After a fifty minute wait or so, it just sailed past me within about twenty feet and proceeded to hunt over the meadow in front of me. The light was really fading so I had to go to ISO2000 but still managed a reasonable shot.
