Barn owl

We have seen a barn owl once before at West Stow Country Park but unfortunately it spotted us before we saw him and he took off from the his look out post before I had chance to focus the camera. On our last visit however we saw him from a distance and hoping he would go for the same post I was ready. He settled as predicted and we watched him from afar then gradually moved a little bit closer. He flapped his huge wings and moved a few fence posts down! He was huge (I'm assuming it's a he but I can't tell) we turned off leaving him to hunt then caught a glimpse again through a small wooded area. So chuffed to finally get a fairly decent photograph.
