With only one hour to go birding this evening, I headed over to Rainham Marshes and was once again treated to great views of a Short- eared Owl. I find them so interesting to watch while they go hunting for voles. And this individual was very successful at it. However, I did come away feeling a little bit frustrated with the pictures of this evening as I still haven't quite got the shots I want. So here are some anyway!. Also seen was a Barn Owl and a Chiffchaff.
