Barn Owl (Tyto alba)

Barn owl tyto alba hunting on the edge of an oilseed rape field


It was worth the 5am start this morning as I headed off to my barn owl site. I'm glad its close to home as I had about fifteen minutes of sunrise and owl before the freezing cold sleet took over. The low sun and oilseed rape have given a lovely golden tone to this image.
