I was visiting friends in Walkington near Beverley this weekend when they told me of a barn owl nearby. Being wide awake at 4am, I thought I might as well get up and check it out. As I approached the area, I found my quarry sitting on a post. He flew off as I approached in the car but later in the morning I found him again in the same place. With the sun directly behind me, he wasn’t so concerned and I managed to get this shot without getting too close.
