Arriving at the car park at just after 2pm, there were already several photographers waiting on the bridge for the owls to show. Distant Whooper and Bewick's Swans, a couple of Marsh Harriers and a group of Roe Deer kept us occupied but the wait continued. It was nearly 3.30pm when the first owl appeared, distantly at first but then came closer and was joined by at least two others, occasionally coming fairly close but most times keeping their distance. Photographing them in flight was a challenge with the light fading all the time while still trying to get used to the autofocus options on my new camera produced a mix of results.
Just as we were about to leave, a Barn Owl began hunting by the car park, but the light really had gone for photography by that point.
