Short-eared Owls Rainham Marshes RSPB

Over the last few weeks the views of the shorties on the reserve have been really good probably due to the fact that around seven birds are hunting around the site. On posts, on the deck and I've even seen them box each other when another bird comes in to its hunting territory, its been really good. But trying to photograph them in the dark or rain or they are just to far for the camera lens, has been frustrating, and the fact most of the images have been put into the recycle bin doesn't help. However, you get one bird that makes it all worthwhile.
