After seeing my first proper barn owl hunt, well two Owls hunting the same meadow I was hooked. I headed to the same location the following week inviting a friend to join me in the hope of seeing the same birds. As the light started to fade we were rewarded with one owl on the far side of the river.

We were then were treated to an amazing display as not one, not two but three owls hunted the meadow on both sides of the river. The light was challenging my lens not long enough, but the owls were simply magical.
