Portfolio - Barn Owls

There can be no bird more iconic to the Norfolk Landscape than the twilight hunting Barn Owl, always a joy to see and there can be nothing better than watching this silent hunter quietly quartering a patch of rough grassland on a long warm summers evening, the low warm setting sunlight illuminating its buff feathers as it unceasingly searches for its elusive prey.

This is a collection of Barn Owl images taken from various sites around North Norfolk, a stronghold of the Norfolk Barn Owl.
