Short Eared Owl

are fairly thin on the ground down here in Cornwall/, with just very small numbers wintering on the moors in the far west and the odd one or two closer to my home on Bodmin moor, this year seems to have been a bit of an exception with more than usual turning up near the coast.

At least two ,maybe three have found one particular Cornish headland to their liking and have showed well on many afternoons, seemingly unconcerned by the public sharing their patch.

This was the third time I’ve visited, the two previous times the weather was dull, windy and cold, and although I had some nice views and managed a few o.k shots, today was bright and sunny and quite warm for February so resulting in great views and some better images. Beautiful birds.

Adrian Davey has had a passion for birds from an early age when he would spend his pocket money on packets of 'Swoop' wild bird food to get close to the birds in the garden. His love of birds and the wildlife found in the world around him has inspired him to try to capture them in photographs as they go about their everyday lives.Living near Launceston on the (Devon side now) Cornwall/Devon border allows plenty of opportunities to visit many beautiful locations, favorites being the North Cornwall coast, the Lands End area and the Exe estuary,as well as traveling further afield both in Britain and overseas.

Thank u for perfect photos of the little beauty. As for being ‘seemingly unconcerned by the public sharing their patch’ one has to accept what cant be changed but are they normally out & about during the day?
