Barn Owl Owlet

A few shots of a Barn Owl Owlet taken at the bird of prey centre in Bedforshire.  For such a small bundle of fluff the size of the feet and talons at such an early stage is remarkable.

Burrowing Owl

Here are a couple of static shots of Basil, a burrowing owl, taken during a photographic day at the Raptor Foundation in Cambridgeshire.  Unfortunately, Basil was not in the mood to put on a flying display, however many of the other raptors did oblige and will be featured in future posts.  I am particularly pleased with the nice bokeh here predominantly provided by the vibrant rapeseed field in the background.

Woburn Safari Park

Established in 1970 in the grounds of the estate of Woburn Abbey, the Safari park has thrilled and enticed many a visitor, and plays host to a variety of wonderful beasts and exotic creatures.  An amateur photographer’s playground, especially when a lioness obligingly opens her jaws wide whilst dozing close to your car, or a penguin peers at you accusingly,  right on cue. My enthusiasm ensured that I toured the larger enclosure twice.  Or was it three times?
