I dropped in on the RSPB reserve at Otmoor yesterday evening and, as ever, it was well worth it.
There were at least three barn owls hunting over the grassland of Moorleys, their beautiful golden and white markings standing out against the sombre vegetation.
Here is a (blurred) close-up showing the exquisite colours.
When I looked north across Greenaways I saw another (and also two cranes against the far hedge, thanks to a birdwatcher who alerted me to them).
I walked round to the first hide, and in the failing light saw another barn owl on the far side of the lagoon (though not visible in the photo below).
I think I probably saw six all together. A lovely end to the day.
