On my recent trip up to Scotland, we visited Dunrobin Castle which is the home of the Countess of Sutherland it's a fabulous house and gardens but a hell of a long way from - well anywhere really!!

They have a selection of birds of prey that they fly for the public during the day, this is their barn owl called plop.

Very very cool shots, Tempra! I like the flying posture you captured in the third shot, and the details in the feathers in the second shot, but basically really like all of them.
