Owls on the Lancashire Fylde

March 5, 2013:
A nice sunny day today but despite this at least three species of owl were active in the area during the afternoon.

Two Short-eared Owls hunted together over the rough farmland, perching frequently in the hawthorn hedgerows where they were usually partially concealed, although occasionally a better view could be obtained.

Nearby a Barn Owl also hunted, not harrassed by the other two, although later attacked by corvids which required avoiding action.

In its favourite tree some distance away a Little Owl made the most of the sunny weather
