Short-eared Owls

wpid1417-2015-11-19-Owls_028.jpgAs it was forecast as a sunny start to the day I went to St Mary’s Island to look for the short-eared owls Ann Brown had told me about.

Since I am no ornithologist my normal technique is to look for folks standing around with large cameras on tripods.  Sure enough I soon spotted 2 such people and wandered over to join them.  I soon realised that I wasn’t wearing enough clothes for the occasion but not wishing to highlight my total amateur  status I stuck it out for an hour and was eventually rewarded.
