4 images from Rutland Water. The Long-eared Owl (s) have been roosting here for a while and can easily be over looked. If it wasn't due to the small group of people gathered near the tree we would have never seen them, we unfortunately missed (by seconds) a Barn owl sitting on a nest box by the fieldfare hide and the numerous Short-eared owls that were spotted.
All the images were taken in dim sunlight and shade, Tripod mounted, manual focused through a bush and taken with the normal camera/lens. They would have turned out alright if there wasn't a big bramble going in-front of its face, but as record shots they are fine.
Was woken up by a low flying plane.
Images are a bit basic but not a bird I normally photo. Tomorrow images from Slimbridge.
