Little Owls on the School Run

As our new baby settles in it's been my job to take on the school run in the morning and I've enjoyed the outings. This morning I spotted a little owl on the way back.
Now that the leaves have started to fall from the trees more difficult birds to spot like little owls become more conspicuous.
Look out for their dumpy silhouettes in the bare branches. Little owls hunt in daylight and can be spotted looking for beetles or earth worms.
This one played hide and seek when it saw me reach for my camera.
 But it soon came out for a good look at me.
