Short Eared Owl

This collection of photos was taken in mid February 2016, near Brighton Race Course on the edge of the South Downs. Short eared owls are daytime flyers and, as a result, the owl had become something of a celebrity for local bird watchers and dog-walkers. These images were taken late afternoon and in the early morning.


Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D  Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM  lens.
