Where’s birdie?

Slightly board with the terrible photo thread.
So thought I’d try something akin to where’s Wally!

Can you find the barn owl?

Unless we are looking at the same thing?

By “right at the far side” I thought you meant to the far right of the picture?

It was also perched not flying?

Hi Julie

No not at the right hand side. Look straight across the centre of the water to the skyline made by the tree tops, then go left a short way until you meet a tree canopy that is semi-circular. Its the biggest tree canopy in the pic so you can't miss it. Underneath it, against the dark shadow line and somewhat to the right is a brilliant white shape, which I fancifully throught might be one of the many Barn Owls present on that day.

At very slightly more than 2/3 across to the right, in the middle of the tree lines, under a small roundish canopy, is something greyish-white that could be an owl with outstretched wings. But the picture is so badly artefacted that it could be anything at all.

Edit: And what is that bright streak next to the leftmost cow's head?

Hi

Troubador you have the barn owl indeed. They are showing very weekend evening when we go now - what a special bird!

Dalethorn that is the cow’s horn - they are Arnold breed :)

Barn Owls are just gorgeous and in a couple of days we are heading for Islay where we have good chances of evening views of them. Can't call them Barnies on Islay though as on that island this name refers to the tens of thousands of wintering Barnacle Geese.

Cheers Lee
