One of my favourite UK owl species.
Barn Owl - Tyto alba
Info from RSPB:
With heart shaped face, buff back and wings and pure white under parts the barn owl is a distinctive and much loved countryside bird. Widely distributed across the UK, and indeed the world, the bird has suffered declines over the past fifty years as a result of the degradation of once prey-rich habitats in the face of intensive agricultural practices. This decline, fortunately, has halted in many areas and the population may now be increasing.
I took this on a trip organised by Danny Green. I loved it. If you want to spend a day out with a world class photographer who has a genuine passion for nature then look him up!
Edit: Minor change to cropping after getting some useful feedback. Thanks all! I think it looks better now.
