Snow Fun for Barn Owls

The Yorkshire Wolds looks beautiful in its winter coat.Pictured below is the view across the dale of Fotherdale, my home and gallery.But whilst it looks very pretty, the cold has been very tough on wildlife. Just this week five barn owls in this area have been reported dead. And when I went to check on the one that lives in this box I found it too had died of starvation.
I did, however, see this, very beautiful, one attempting to hunt in the 18"deep snow in Millington Pastures.
As the snow fell relentlessly she took to shaking it off in quite a comical manner!

And then she was off, looking for a vole.
