Roosting Barn Owl

Roosting Barn Owl, east Kerry, 11th May 2013 (Davey Farrar).

Barn Owls hide themselves away by day, so it is rare to see one perched in the open. This one, a male,  is perched on an overhead roof beam, inside a small, derelict cottage. The nest is in the chimney of the same building and Barn Owls have nested here for at least the last four years.
