I’m not a birder or a twitcher or anything, but I like birds, and have taken a passing interest in them ever since getting drawn into the expensive habit of feeding wild birds. My favourites are the raptors and I can thoroughly recommend a day out doing the falconry experience at one of the various bird of prey centres around the country. Birds make good targets for the camera and they certainly help to hone the skills. A big lens helps!
More owl hunting at a distance…
Looking for short-eared owls, but all a bit distant.
