The first Barn Owl was found after only driving about 200m from the shed! Looked like luck was going to be on our side this night! Little did I know that the highlight wouldn't be the 6 Barn Owls we came across and photographed but a very confiding Little Button-quail which we came across in a paddock which had been cut for hay. This meant ankle deep stubble which works well for keeping a eye on these little guys and made it possible for me to get a few images of a species I haven't been able to photograph before!
The Owls were great but the Quail made it even better! Top night out!
