Barn Owl Tyto alba perched in a tree, this (wild) bird was just 13 metres away from me and Julie for nearly an hour! I had taken Julie on a photo tuition/Owl safari day, she had only ever had fleeting views of Barn Owls twice before, we saw at least 9 different individual Barn Owls, 3 of them giving us very close prolonged views, It was a real buzz to show someone these birds at such close range.

Melanistic barn owl by fremlin  Melanism is an undue development of dark-colored pigment in the skin or its appendages and is the opposite of albinism. Historically, it was also the medical term for black jaundice. Pseudo-melanism, also called abundism, is another variant of pigmentation, characterized by dark spots or enlarged stripes, which cover a large part of the body of the animal making it appear melanistic.
