So were we lucky? indeed we were after a wait of about 1 1/2 hours and in the last moments of dusk we had Barn 0wl, and a few minutes later a Short Eared Owl flew in front of the hide.
So two year ticks cant be bad , although it was to dark for Photo's. But earlier we had a great view of the full moon rising over the trees at the far end of the cutoff. Managed a few pics so I will leave you with one of the images.
This photo was taken with the EOS 20D 400mm lens @ 1/125s @ f5.6.
