Whats more exciting than seeing a Barn Owl?

I stopped off in Ripley on my cycle ride home this evening the plan was to take some pictures of the sunset before heading home. I got my sunset shot as planned and then a Barn Owl appeared, on the other side of the river hunting in the long grass. As the owl flew further away a kingfisher went straight past heading down stream! Then just to make the evening even more amazing a second Barn Owl appeared! I was then treated to about 20 minutes of hunting display as the two owls covered different areas of the flood plain. Wow simply doesn’t quite cover it.
