From the Bird Hide…

Animals, bird watching, Nature

Boy and I went birdwatching with some friends today and we were very lucky. As Boy and his friend were busy looking for large branches of trees to throw in the water, I stayed in the bird hide with my binoculars and I got to see ducks, crows, Canadian geese, a cormorant, a heron in flight, landing on the water, a kingfisher, a blue-tit and an Iceland gull… It was fantastic!

Barn owls, everywhere

Magical sight in the air

Grand, powerful stare.

The first time I met you, barn owl, it was in the summer 2005. I was driving in the very early hours of the morning, on the motorway in the south east of France, on my way to Germany.
