Back to Lunt

Barn Owl quartering the meadow at Lunt

An unplanned visit to Lunt Meadows due to the closure of Holmeswood Road – the only road leading up to another LWT reserve at Meresands Wood. Great to see the Owls performing yet again. The sight of a Barn Owl quartering a meadow in late afternoon is always a memorable experience. Next time I’ll have to try and photograph one catching a vole.

Still at least 3 Short-eared Owls giving the Barn Owls a run for their money. The competition for voles is probably the reason why the Barn Owls are out during daylight hours.

A bit of a distant shot but interesting to see a Short-eared Owl perched up in a tree – momentarily.

A lone Whooper Swan.

Surprised to find a lone Whooper Swan on one of the pools. No doubt the rest of the family were relatively close by.
