This page will be updated on a regular basis, to show some of my latest photos and to set out a little bit of information about when and where they were taken.
This magnificent bird, is a common barn owl (Tyto Alba). With it silent flight, super-sensitive hearing and brilliant nocturnal vision, the barn owl is an sublime and efficient aerial hunter. Their golden colouring and beautiful heart shaped facial disk also make it one of our most angelic and attractive birds. Sadly, Barn Owl numbers are thought to have declined by at least 70% in the United Kingdom since the 1930's due to the loss of habitat and nesting sites. The photographs above were taken at the International Centre for Birds of Prey in Newent Gloucestershire, in October 2017.
