Silence is Golden

If you are one of the lucky people to come across a Barn Owl flying gracefully across an open field. Many people say they saw the Barn Owl or heard the Barn Owl but in most cases they have heard a Tawny Owl.

If you do get a rare sight of the Barn Owl in flight it could last seconds.

So I am going to share with you the true feeling of the amazing White Angel as she hunts in a field close by to me.

Even when you film a Barn Owl i always hide from her site so she can hunt without being disturb.

The Slow motion video gives you an understanding of how gracefully she moves across the field listening for any movement in the grass.

I really hope this gives people a better understanding of the reason why I fell in love with this Owl from the first time I set eyes on it

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
