Little Owl Pellet – Peak District Wildlife Photography

Little Owl Pellet. Adult little owl coughing up a pellet. Peak District National Park. Alongside traditional portraits, I also like to photograph different behaviours, giving more of an insight into their habits. They only do this a couple of times a day, so I was really happy to be in the right place this time! 

After discovering this family of little owls, I visited most evenings, using the car as a mobile hide to get close without causing disturbance. Although initially they were slightly cautious of the car, they quickly became accustomed to my presence offering some great photographic opportunities.

About Little Owls:

Little Owls were first introduced to the UK in the early 19th century. Of all the owls found in the UK the little owl is the most crepuscular and can often be seen perched in broad daylight. When alarmed they will rapidly bob their heads up and down and rapidly take flight with their long rounded wings.

You can find more information on little owls here.
