Evenings with the owls

Had 2 very pleasent evening watching the hunting Short-eared owls at Heartwood Forest just wonderful watching them seeing very happy hunting with all the dog walkers around and very nice explaing to the walkers about the birds as the ones i spoke to seeemed geninue intrested in seeming them so close.

The owls I saw were hunting throughout four different fields and often fighting with each other over hunting rights and i only saw them with prey but i think that was due to fact that there feeding straight after they caught prey on the ground.
