AN AFTERNOON OUT AND OSPREY DUTY AT RUTLAND WATER.
Richard and myself had an afternoon travelling to Rutland water where we were on Osprey duty and owling on route, and again owling on our return. We visited all our normal sites and found owls at many. I finished with a grand total of eleven little owls seen and Richard with ten so all in all a great day.
|This is a much clearer image but you cannot read the ring number.|
|Little Owl Site No 5.|
|Little Owl Site No 9.|
The above two images were taken on our way back from Rutland water. By then we were loosing the light so image quality down somewhat. We found the two juveniles, one on a post and one in the nest tree.
|Little Owl Site No. 10.|
Little owl juvenile. More a record shot as bird was 190 metres away.
|Little Owl Site No 15.|
Little Owl juvenile. We have seen birds at this site before but not since I started my blog so for me its a new site
|Common Blue Damsel Fly. Immature female.|
|Female Common Darter.|
|Migrant Hawker, image caught in flight, more through luck than expertise.|
|Ruddy Darter with somewhat Tatty Wings.|
On our way home we saw a Little Owl sat on top of a telegraph pole at a site where Richard had seen a bird a considerable time ago. So little owl Site No. 16.
