Barn owl etc..

As I was leaving Marston this evening I noticed this barn owl. Surprisingly it didn’t fly off, allowing me to photograph it. The pics perhaps could have been sharper if my windscreen wasn’t so mucky, but I didn’t want to put the wipers on for fear of scaring it.

Meanwhile, back at the reedbed….this time I managed to get a shot of no less than four rails.
