Yesterday, it was not raining. I could not believe it! It turns out to be a nice day. I know a barn owl breeding site. I went to that site hoping to see, and maybe photograph that superb bird. Well I saw it and I photograph it quite well too. That is not the whole story…I almost got court in a stampede!
I was standing near a hedge, about 70 metres away from the site. The breeding site is an old barn. Barn owls have been using that site for years. The bird were hunting and feeding young’s. The problem was that both birds were coming inside the barn opposite from where I was standing. I wanted to go on the other side but that was impossible. Impossible because I was followed by 50 cattle where ever I was going. The cattle were really close to me and Trust me I did not like to be surrounded by those beasts. I was chassed by those cattle all afternoon and at the end I gave up . I wonder if anyone did hear me swearing. I am sure that people living in a five miles radius from where I was standing have heard me!
