Tawny Owl - youngster

June and John Oliver sent me this great photo of a young Tawny Owl taken near Tansley. It looks like it's probably just taken its first flight and ended up close to the ground.
Despite the fact that the Tawny is our commonest owl locally and occurs in all habitats from the river valleys to the upland areas of both the White and Dark Peak they are seldom seen and, as with other owls, the increased activity when they are feeding young or encounters with the young are probably the best chance of a decent view.
