Ah my secret is out Peter we dressed our dog Jasper as a giant field vole and had him jump around in the grass that attracted the entire Owl population of Lincolnshire hoping for a snack :))
there is indeed a good population of other raptors around this fen area nr the village but the Owls seem more people friendly than most
best wishes ... steve
Thank you Nick for another YS-L here .. i was indeed soon shooting lots of shots :))
Hello Peter i notice my camera time is one hour out as i arrived at 6.00pm and reversed into the gateway to wait then noticed the Owl in the mirror land on the gate behind me within seconds of arriving .. faster than i could locate an image on the net and photoshop it onto this image of the gate :))
this was my third visit with the camera with the second a no show due to weather conditions ? so i hope over the coming weeks i will get the hang of making the best of the locations for flying shots
best wishes to both as always ... steve
Thank you for visiting, and nice to hear from you! I must say I haven't seen you around for a while. Maybe you have been concentrating on the European trips.
This class 20 had just come out of overhaul, including a new paint job, hence it looks good in the sunshine. Not a bad spot if you want the occasional roar or trumpet in the background!
Thank you once again Nick and again i am pleased you think this one worthy of your YS-L .. very much appreciated
Hello Peter thank you again here .. i am sure with two pairs of Owls in this location they will be often seen during daylight hours hunting when both pairs have young to feed so i will no doubt spend a few evenings to come along this road with the camera :))
Thank you for coming back to this picture. To receive these awards from someone with such expertise on churches is indeed an honor for me.
Thank you for coming back to this little robin, which is also from Porthmadog estuary. Your visit is much appreciated.
I have walked past here many times, and there is always some different birds to see, although most seem to be far away. A good lens is needed!
Thank you for coming back to this picture from Porthmadog estuary. There were a whole flock of these, and as I seem to remember, chose a picture with a few individuals in a few different poses. I am happy that you like it!
Hello Peter thank you for your observations here on the lens and the lucky way i seem to point it in the right direction at times :))
and more so than my directional observations it seems as you are of course right it is facing south while sitting in the East so title ammended .. thank you :))
Thank you for digging this one out of the archives, and reading the story!
It was not too difficult to see, especially from the car park, but not everybody looks upwards..... I see that you certainly did to photograph the above mentioned.
