Local Wildlife

Just because Steve finds a pair of Tawny Owl youngsters he thinks he can have a gallery of birds....! One has to start somewhere..!! Mostly taken at 300mm using the 75-300mm Canon DO lens, and postprocessed using various programmes as I am still experimenting! I am now using the Canon 400mm 5.6L and Canon 1.4 TC - hand held, somehow the tripod seems to stay at home! Off for the first two weeks of June to the Isle of Mull so we'll see what fortune brings!

Good leaflet on what to do if you find a Tawny Owlet:
