Barred owl

Strix varia


I spotted this owl across a field and tried to make my way quietly towards it. Suddenly, it looked down very intently and then dropped to the ground. When I got a bit closer, it flew back up to the branch where it had been - apparently having consumed something. And then it flew off.
