I was lucky enough to be given a great Christmas present - a day's Birds Of Prey photography workshop. Here's a few from that day - comments are always welcome :)

Little Owl: half a pint of pure attitude

Tawny Owl - who always look grumpy to me for some reason:

They are called buzzards in Europe.

Great series of photos, I especially like the Owls.

If I'm not mistaken, all the buetos are known as types of buzzards in Europe. Not quite the same meaning as in the US.

Thanks for the comments, all :)
These were taken in Wales, and so the buzzard is what we would call a Common Buzzard - I hadn't set my location in my profile so I can understand the confusion.
