After some hours searching news came that 2 owls are within sight and provided photo opportunity. Upon arrival at the location only one owl remained on the perch on a tree branch by the bank of a pond.
Night birding takes a different dimension and excitement to a birder. The pitch dark atmosphere of the hunt provides a high level of enhanced anticipation. The torch light should be used sparingly and with discretion not to 'cause stress' to the bird or mammal. The same is applicable to the camera's flash.
Here are 2 photos for sharing.
