Little Owl ~ South Brent

Yesterday afternoon a friend who keeps sheep on my fields at South Brent came over and said that he had just flushed a Little owl into the hedge from a fence post. No sooner had he left than the bird appeared on a post in the field by the house.

Last evening just as it got dark I saw the bird again on a road side lamp post.

Another two sightings today, initially in this mornings rain, the bird was sheltering out of the rain on a sheltered gate post and a little later I spotted it sat on a branch in an Oak tree and managed to take a few images of it.

Only other thing of interest today was a pair of Ravens that spent some time in an elaborate dance around the sky remaining in a tight formation throughout.
