24th February 2016 seen by Neil Pedliham

West End: I was taking photos of a Great Crested Grebe diving in front of the John Cooper hide when I saw a white bird coming across from the north bank. It was only when it was half way across that I realised it was a Barn Owl. I couldn’t get my camera to change focus quick enough to get a shot but it was a lovely sight anyway. The grebe must have seen it as it set off at a pace toward the middle of the water.
