Some footage taken last Summer by Chris Wray during a visit to the Little Owl Photo Hide. Hope you enjoy!
Spent the last few weeks building and testing my new DSLR camera trap system. This picture of the Buzzard was one of my first captures taken deep inside the wood. Hopefully more to follow.
With the last of the warm summer nights this is a great time to photograph the Tawny Owls down at our woodland hide. The birds are visiting the perches shortly after sunset each evening. I will be on hand to give guiding help regarding lighting etc if needed. If anyone is interested in a session […]

Last winter we spend several freezing days fitting mini video cameras to the Little Owl Boxes and after checking the cameras on Saturday it quickly became apparent that the Little Owls have laid their first egg – what a result! Fingers crossed for more.
