Owls and more at Heartwood

This winter the short-eared owls have been performing very well with up four since in the middle of the winter which makes up for last winter when there were only seen just as it got dark. Lucky this year there were showing very well at times showing around lunchtimes as per usual there seem to show best for me around march when they get ready to fly back north.
