I received a tip off from the brilliant artist @deborahvasspainting
this afternoon that one of the tawny owls that had nested in her garden this year was showing well, and that I'd be welcome to come down with my camera. So, I didn't hang about and shot off in the car! I crept as quietly as I could (lots of crispy fallen leaves underfoot) through the garden and got a fantastic view, so exciting to see a tawny during the day! It gave a stare as if to say 'I'm warning you pal, DO NOT come any closer', so I let it be. Owls are wonderful creatures and having just returned from a fabulous #birdfair
having seen @drmiriamdarlington
's inspiring talk about her fabulous book, I really can't wait to go owl watching at the fen this coming Autumn & Winter, especially for short eared owls at Burwell.
