Owls, Deer, Starlings & Nile Monitors

Some further additions to the wildlife gallery today… I spent this afternoon watching Short-eared Owls in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire.

Whilst it certainly represents a lot of birds, this was actually only a small fraction of late arrivals. The main flock was a bit too far away and largely … Read more
