I wonder if it's a he or a she? Wonderful to see. In fact I wish I had stopped taking photos and just sat with it for a while. Am sure it will be back though, David often see's them in the far barn at this time of year.

How adorable and look how he poses :-)

Poor thing Dawn, think he was a wee bit startled.

We had a tawny owl nest in our owl box last Winter, it layed eggs but they didnt hatch, sadly. Maybe he was looking for a nest site?

Ooh lucky you Lulu! He's a beauty!

2 Nov, 2011

Even sketching it is hard! Off to buy a compass, or maybe just use a saucer to get the curves of the head right!

Great photo of the Little Owl Lulu. I've just had a look in my bird book about telling the difference between the male and female and it says that they are alike. We used to get the owls just down the road from here. Haven't heard any this year, wondered if the bad winter killed them off.
