Ow(l) well can you see? This perfectly camouflaged bird blends into a stone ridge.
Wildlife snapper Villager Jim captured the difficult-to-spot Little Owl perched on a rocky crag in Tideswell, Peak District, at 5.30am on Friday [May 31].
Jim, 63, from nearby Foolow, said: “I often look out for Little Owls on walls and rocks – and isn’t this one beautiful?
“I call this game ‘Hunt the Little Owl’ – people love the fact these birds blend in so well with their amazing stony-coloured camouflage.
“As we have at least 10 nesting sites close by, every day without fail I see one of them.
“They seem to be breeding really well up here in the Peak District National Park.”
