Sad news from the moss lands of North Lancashire

Evening Roost

Short-Eared Owl

I had a great time photographing this Short-Eared Owl one of three flying in the late afternoon, along with my mate Ian Latham, but the day was tempered by the sad news of the deaths of two Barn Owls that have been shot in this locality. I believe the Owls are now in the custody of the Police. It is no coincidence that two Barn Owls that were seen regularly at a certain site haven't been seen for around two weeks.

The two Barn Owls now feared dead shot with an air pistol.
