Peregrine falcons are such pretty birds. So elegant.

I don't know. He was fluffed up because it was a very cold day.

I've taken a look at a webpage helping to identify European owls. #2 looks to me like either a long-eared owl or an eagle owl (the feather ears and face pretty much rule out anything else). The former is 35-37cm long and has a wing span of 84-95 cm, about the size of a barn owl. The latter about double the size at a length of 60-75cm and a wingspan of 160-170 cm and does not live in England in the wild. Does that help?

I shall have to show these to a co-worker. She adores owls!

I do believe that owl's jimmies are rustled!

That second owl looks...displeased.

That's a beautiful peregrine.
