Owl on an aerial, Biddestone
Owl on an aerial, Biddestone
This owl was first seen from the nearby cemetery and occasioned some excitement as these birds aren't often seen in daylight. I was hopeful of getting a decent photo of it as it didn't seem to be moving much. When I was able to find a more favourable position to photograph the bird I was much relieved to find it still in position. Unfortunately this image doesn't do justice to either the subject or to the efforts of the householder who trained it to sit there for hour after hour protecting the complex array of aerials and antennae in his back garden.
