Whilst walking around the lagoons, hoping to get a decent view of the Ring-necked Duck, fortune smiled when a Short-eared Owl suddenly appeared over the track in the distance.....
Two sequences, the first sadly into the light.....
Heading towards us!
Then not surprisingly, veering away!
And then later during the walk, appearing overhead!
Oh for some blue sky!
The walk was worth it for this alone plus the Ring-necked Duck coming next :-)
