Barn Owl sitting on the camera

Barn Owl sitting on the camera

2014 has seen an apparent successful breeding season for Barn Owls in the Gidding Parish. At one location I tried to film some evening activity with a new time lapse camera, really just to understand the potential of this type of camera. So it was with surprise and great delight that on reviewing the film that a Barn Owl had decided to land on the camera and use it as a perch for quite a few seconds. If you look carefully another Owl can be seen in the Ash tree. 

The camera is a Brinno TLC200.

    Are you sure this really was a Barn Owl or was it a trickster from Winwick?
