#BirdWeekly ~ Owls #raptors #nature #photography #wildlife #owls

This week, Lisa Coleman’s Bird Weekly challenge features owls. These photos are from a wonderful day a few years ago with Norfolk Wild Encounters—a rehoming and rescue sanctuary. We’re not in an area where we can see owls in their natural habitat so this was a real treat.

The Great Grey Owl is very impressive (and looks much bigger close up) and is non native to the UK.

I hope I remember the names correctly. I think this is a baby Eagle Owl. It was hand reared and very friendly.

It was amazing to watch the Barn Owl fly around the field. They hunt small mammals, mostly field voles, shrews and mice, and are widespread throughout the UK.

Possibly a young Horned Owl…
