Night Owls

An evening session after dark to photograph Barn Owls that are supplementary fed. These owls are wild but come to food. You will be sitting or standing in the open in a small meadow. Multiple opportunities should be available to capture these ghosts of the night as they hover and glide in. The opportunities for flight shots are outstanding. Up to ten different owls can appear in winter with fewer birds during spring and summer. At some periods during the year a Tawny Owl visits too.


Depending on the time of year will depend on what time the owls are fed. It is always after dark and the most productive period is from December through to mid March. Typically in winter our meeting time is around 7pm with a finish at around 10 pm.

Recommended Gear

Ideally equipment that has a telephoto ability between 100 and 400 mm and a flash although if you have a camera with pop up flash then this is adequate and excellent results can be achieved. We can supplement or supply a full kit for the evening if required including flash and set everything up so all you need do is concentrate on composing and firing the camera.
