Long-eared Owl juveniles are more usually heard than seen so finding four in my local wood was a good result but as usual they were all 30-40 feet up in Scots pines! contrast this with the juveniles from Woodwalton Fen taken on an early morning 05:30 visit on the 27th--the difference in pics is pretty obvious

prime object of the early morning vigil was a Nightjar census--following the poor showing in 2004 there appear to be a lot more birds this spring with 7 as opposed to 3 on my census area---birds are very active from 02:00 to 03:00----still no good daylight shots though!
