Barn Owls

Barn Owls hunting for voles. These pictures were taken from Middle Drive in Woolsington looking north towards the Wheatsheaf.


Sadly barn Owls are not as common as they used to be due to loss of natural habitat. But if you are out and about around dusk, then keep your eyes open, you may see one.
