Short Eared Owls Rainham

With prefect clear and still conditions yesterday afternoon I headed back to the west end of Rainham Marshes hoping to latch onto the Short Eared Owls. This time I got onto the higher section of the silts where I think the owls prefer to hunt. Walking up the back to view I immediately had 2 owls about 75 yards ahead of me. Bingo!

I watched the owls for a good 30 minutes, in plummeting temperatures, with one heading east and the other remaining loyal to the immediate vicinity; although it mained pretty distant (200 yards) most of the time.

I'll be back to stake it out and try and get some good photos. (unlike this) Watch this space.
