Owls are a bit addictive. They are beautiful, mysterious and the fact that they take a bit of effort to see in the evening makes them them top of the list wherever you are birding. There are around 230 species in the world, some very rare with restricted ranges, but the Owl with the biggest range is the Barn Owl.
There were at least three out tonight and I took pictures of them hunting in the twilight.The first one I saw was at 19 minutes to three, when a Marsh Harrier was also distantly hunting, but I didn't get into range until ten minutes later.
A second bird came by but there was no interaction between them. After I'd packed my camera away there was a good chase between a Barn Owl and a Carrion Crow, but to late for me to record. More photos here.
