Little Owlet Feeding

Little Owlet Feeding. When the parents bring food to the owlets they get incredibly excited, flapping their wings like mad. This can make it pretty tricky to get a good angle without the wings blocking the view. After several failed frames I eventually managed to get this clear view of the moment. It’s such a privilege for me to be able to watch behaviour like this up close. Derbyshire, Peak District NP.

Using my car as a mobile hide I am able to get extremely close to this family of little owls by the side of a quiet country lane. Little owls are creatures of habit and typically favour the same perches and routines, so I regularly see them on the same perches.

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.
