Still working on Barn Owls, this evening at Titchmarsh LNR ....... Yey ! ...... a bit of progress.

...... Sunset due at 6.20 ........ I arrived at 5.30, light quality good, 300mm F4 Nikon with 1.4 T.c.  .... not the best for low light conditions.

I could hardly believe my eyes when this bird appeared immediately .... perfect, it was quartering all over the reed beds, I don't know if my camera settings are the best but the resultant images are getting there .... but not quite there yet !.

It should be easy to identify this bird in future as it has clearly lost a feather or two on its right wing.

What can be better than a Barn Owl hunting over my local reserve ..... fantastic and yet humbling.


  1. Brilliant set John excellent detail !!!

  2. Judging on my eyes I think the settings are fine John.

  3. Definitely the best shots so far John, excellent, well done.
