'My' barn owl

Our third sighting of the barn owl now when we've visited West Stow so it's now, of course 'my' owl! Today having parked outside the country park we spotted him through the trees - he's incredibly easy to see now, so bright against the dull trees, and yet people parked up their cars, dogs got out to be walked, people intent on their day he went mostly unnoticed. Except of course we were already on the look out in case he was around. Just after the photo below he took flight, huge wings flapped only once or twice then he disappeared down into the heath before taking off again and disappearing out of view. So incredible.
