A first for me today. Over by the hotel, a barn owl looking for food in the field that has cows in it. I was startled for a bit as it came up real close by a gap in the hedge. It turned away pretty sharp and headed for some trees.

Barn owls do hunt during the day Placi. I just looked it up. Also I reported the sighting with the Barn Owl Trust.

I keep seeing a red kite gliding high above, tried to take a picture few times but it just passes above and doesn't give me enough time to get my phone and take a picture. If I manage that will just be pure luck. When it flies a bit lower you can see just how magnificent and how big the wings on that bird are! Breathtaking :)
