Do they often come out in the day?
I sometimes see a ghostly grey shape swoop across the road in front of me at night.
But that might have been Mary queen of Scots.

Oooo! A highlight, thank you xxx I'll let the photographer know. She should start her own moblog, those sparrowhawk pics I posted were her's too.

Joker: I've seen the barn owls around my Bro's place. Dusk is when they seem to come out to hunt although I know people who have seen them in broad daylight.

If what you saw had no head than I think it's safe to assume it was Mary Queen of Scots....

Bro J says he has seen the owl only once this year. In 1998 a barn owl was out on the green hunting, where the pictured owl is, every evening and at dawn. It would fly up and down its hunting ground - known as quartering - looking for food. If it caught anything we would then watch it flying back to its barn up on the hill, closely following the hedgerows all the way. This was so regular that quite a group of locals would stand on the green's perimeter to watch the owl. We had a couple out together a few times. When standing still it has flown to within 20 feet before realising I was there and then turning away. They have a very graceful ghostlike flight. Owls are not very loyal and if they find a better nesting place then they will move on, which might explain their long absences.

Most nights we can hear an owl hooting but this is not the barn owl as they do not hoot. I have occasionally seen a little owl so it might be him.
