Found this gorgeous Tawny Owl today on a fence bar in a sunlit hedge. It was obviously soaking up some winter sunshine on this cold day. The temperature was about 1 c when I sketched from a range of about twenty feet. Lovely warm brown feathers were accentuated by the low winter sun. Finding a Tawny Owl in daylight can be difficult and this was undoubtedly my best ever daylight view of this common but beautiful owl.
