Short eared owls

Winter brings an influx of short eared owls to this country from the continent and many go to coastal areas to overwinter.  Living on the North Wales coast and close to the Dee Estuary we are in a great position to be able to see them fairly locally and my latest wildlife journal page features studies of them using Gary's photos as reference.

It is always a memorable and magical experience to see any owl in the wild and the only British owl I haven't had good sightings of is the tawny owl but I'm hoping I will get to see one this year.

I would also like to share with you a deliciously loose watercolour landscape that an artist friend of mine painted from one of the photos I shared in my last blog post.

The working week is now over for me but the weather's not looking great for walking tomorrow so I don't think I'll be going too far so I may get some extra painting time in. 

Thanks for popping by.


  1. Sharon....The page from your journal of the SEO is excellent and a credit to you, and the watercolour by Leona from your brilliant photograph is also excellent.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. Wonderful owls!! And your friend's watercolor sketch is just right :)

  3. Great work on the owls Sharon, and I love Leona's painting.


I love hearing from you, thank you so much for leaving a comment - I will always try to leave a reply and pop over to visit your blog if you have one - although sometimes I may be slower than others, have a wonderful day xx
