Tawny Owl

I have never seen a Tawny Owl in the wild and unless you are a keen birder I suspect that would be par for the course for most.  On this occasion, I was standing at a farm gate for nearly two hours photographing red kites in flight when I turned to my left for no particular reason, – by so I discovered this Tawny Owl, only 20ft away,  having a good old nosey at me.  After a few minutes snapping away the Tawny obviously got bored and rapidly disappeared up the tree.  Frustratingly, it was quite late in the day and the light was very poor; as you can see my lens struggled to cope so the shots are slightly blurry and not the best, but still worth taking nonetheless!
