Short-eared owls : West Wales

Yesterday Fri 25th November myself and 'togger' friends Dave Gilbert and Mal Durbin from the Rhondda made a trip down to West Wales in search of Short-eared owls calling in at Kidwelly Quay on our way.

Kidwelly was fairly quiet with only the usual birds to be found and most of those were distant.

After a quick coffee and a sandwich and with Mal at the wheel we pushed on to our destination and after a good search of our target area we found two 'Shorties' hunting some rough pasture fields in the last couple of hours of daylight.

We 'filled our boots' as the saying goes and after taking some 500 or so photos before the light faded we called it a day and set off for home.

The three of us were more than happy with the images that we came away with.......
