  3. Oh this birds are magnificent. That first owl looks like Harry Potter's owl. They are probably not even the same species but that was the first thing I thought of when I saw it.

    1. That is a bigger bird than Harry Potter's Leanan. His was a Snowy Owl and this is a Great Horned Owl. It gets its name due to having feather tufts on its head which are not visible in flight. You can see them in this photo although they are being blown about!

  7. Fascinating photos. We have a pair of buzzards nesting close by and often see them hunting in the fields that back the house. x

    1. I took over 1300 photos, Shirley and it took me about a week to whittle them down to just over 190 keepers. Using a burst many were very similar.

    1. The displays make it easier Tanya as you have some idea of where they are going to fly to and from. Also these birds very steady in flight they don't flap about like little birds. Then of course there is the advantage of having a burst facility on the camera.
