Hawk owl!

Wet and bedraggled in the mist and drizzle like the photographer, my second BK hawk owl gave me the run-around this morning. Great birds as always, though I am hoping it will stick around and we get to see the sun this week for a better photo.

Nipped out into the rain and mist to tramp around Älemossen this morning in search of the hawk owl. I was not alone and eventually a bunch of Henrik's found it for us (thanks!) when the bird was mobbed by some jays off in the gloom. Great views in the mist but the bird was rather wary in the gloom and the light was appalling for photography. Stopped off quickly in Axeltorpsravinen on the way home for the yearly dipper.

The only other bird of note today in the mist was this dipper at Axeltorpsravinen.
