A Pair of Little Owls


We were driving near Bramhope as my attention was drawn to a rounded shape on the lower branch of an Oak. Remaining in the car we stopped for a better look and were delighted to make out a Little Owl perched on the branch with its back to us. After 10 minutes it flew 50 metres to the right and settled on a stone wall at which point we were doubly delighted realised to see a second Little Owl perched  above it in the branches of a Holly tree.

We've only ever seen one Little Owl in this spot previously and hadn't seen that one for a few months so it was lovely to see the two owls together.

  1. That was a nice find Linda :-) Maybe they are nesting in the gaps of that old wall ?
