See if you can get this Bob aulaenred.ibercaja.es/.../269_LittleOwlAnoctua.pdf
I wouldn't know if you can tell apart either, but I think nesting usually starts in April so I suppose it is possible the female is already tucked away and perhaps the male is more likely to be the one out and about being photographed but that's just a wild piece of speculation.
Thanks Alan and Nige. Looking at the guide and comparing the out of focus photo a couple of pages back that I took I'm still not sure as they looked the same size, possibly the back one a little larger. Possibly this is the male then as this was the one in front in the other photo. That's if they are a pair.
Some today. Sun came out finally.
Brilliant Bob especially the video
Thanks Alan. He is very dependable and funny to watch. I think because branches were between us he thought he was invisible as he was quite close today.
Lovely view over the water Bob, and the Little Owl is showing really well.
Great updates Bob with pics and clip, I do love that L.Owl and the "expression" they give, what a character he looks ! Looks like more sunny weather to come yet so keep the camera ready lol
Thanks Nige, Gaynor and Hazel.
A few this morning.
You got a Barnie now Bob as well as Little Owls...you lucky man.
Love the Hare shot too, and the Heron that can't read.
Thanks Alan. In a barn 2 fields away from the barn where the little owl lives. Hares were great today, never seen so many mixed in with rabbits. As for the heron :)
Lovely shots Bob, you are jammy - both Barn and Little Owls and the fabulous Hares too, well captured.
Thanks Gaynor :)
