Had an hour camouflaged up leant against a wall circa 40m from the nest site. used the 500 with 2 x TC and waited for the Owlets to appear, which thankfully they did for 20 minutes. So cute, beautiful little fluff balls. I feel responsible for these birds now so keeping a close eye on them. They can fly but not full wing structure yet.

Another drive back into the village with Adult using fence posts alongside road to hunt from. Terrible light but dropped shutter down to 1/160th as I was using the 2 x TC on my 500mm. Got to be pleased with the final shot.

This time close to the nest site with an adult sat on a stone fence post. Images from car again with the 1000mm combo. Final shot is from behind a dry stone wall, fully camouflaged up, of one of the two owlets. Believe the nest is in a wall or burrow below a large Oak tree.

Ever reliable in usual location, also using favoured dead tree as a preening perch. this time using my 500 with 2 x TC, not pin sharp but acceptable.

Daily drive by and one adult in usual fields caught a stinking field vole. It could only just carry it off.

Came across a pair feeding young in a nest in a dry stone wall so I used the car as a hide to capture the images. Amazed at how quickly they were catching insects and invertebrates.

On my way home, window down on the car, causing a traffic jam, 500mm lens pointing through the window, fortunately an automatic car, foot on the brake, shoot!!!!
