the end of a good season for Short-eared Owls

This slightly belated post is a reminder of what a good winter season it has been for Short-eared Owls. Paul Tyrrell sent me a series of great shots of these owls photographed in Gower during the last month or two, but this one was by far my favourite. I know Paul likes to tuck himself away and wait for the birds to come to him, but in this shot it's clear he's been spotted!
