....a case of after the Lord Mayor's Show !

After leaving Dan and Lewis and a fruitless visit to the Heliport and Water Treatment Works on Cardiff foreshore Richard and myself decided to finish off an already great day with a visit to Sluice Farm in the hope off catching up with some Short-eared Owls.
As we approached Sluice Farm I spied a SEO hunting over the fields alongside the main road and and after quickly parking on the grass verge we were soon on  two owls hunting in really good light from about 15.30.
Both made kills and after about 45mins one disappeared and the other perched up in a tree for a while before flying off back over the wharf.
As the light started to fade we picked up the call of a Little Owl but as it was coming from private land we couldn't investigate any further.
What a great end to what had already been a brilliant day,a "lifer" in the bag and some reasonable owl pics to finish off.
