    Hi Parky, they are Asio otus, Long-eared owls. These are only chicks we have three of them but could only find two last night .
    We were very lucky we got to see the adult bird fly in and move them to another tree then seconds later a sparrowhawk flew overhead just managed to get a poor photo of it, what a way to spend a Saturday night,almost as good as fishing.[IMG][/IMG]

    Nice photos. Interesting how sky often comes that shade of blue when using digital camera in lower light conditions.

    I often see young owls at this time of year, just sitting on the tarmac in the road at dusk.

    No obvious sign of roadkill nearby, so I wonder why they do it?

    Really great pictures. Have never managed to see an owl in "real life" yet but looks fascinating.
