Welcome to the new Owlers' Blog Network (OBN).

The intention is, primarily, to unite those persons who already have an interest in owls, and who have a blog which has a significant owl-related content, in order that they can easily share their interest and experiences, and build up a sense of camaraderie.

It is also hoped that those who are just developing an interest in owls will be inspired by the links to the blogs of people who are already passionate about these wonderful birds, and join our ranks!

If you have a blog with a strong owl content and would like to become part of this network, please e-mail me at richard@peglermail.co.uk with the URL of your blog. All I ask is that, in return, you add a 'gadget' link to the OBN from your blog using the HTML code that you will be supplied with.

If you have any information which you feel that owlers in general could benefit from, such as a valuable resource for information, or a warning about a developing situation, etc. please submit it to the OBN administrator at richard@peglermail.co.uk.

If you have found this site to be at all interesting/useful, it would be much appreciated if you would show your support by becoming a 'follower'. That way, you'll also see when a new owler joins the network, or if we publicise a new owling resource.

Thank you for visiting, and happy owling!

A Spanish Photographer of Note

OBN member Christian Thompson has brought to my attention the amazing blog of Spanish photographer Mario Cea. 

I believe that one post, in particular, will be of interest to OBN  members, and visitors to this blog. It showcases Mario's skills as applied to capturing images of Little Owls in action. One of the images from this post is reproduced below.

 What I particularly like, apart from the fabulous images, is that Mario shares with us his set-up for achieving these images. This set-up exhibits a total dedication to his hobby.

Please also take the time to look at some of Mario's non-owl images - they are truly stunning. You can find a link to Mario's Little Owl post at http://mariocea-fotofauna.blogspot.com/2011/09/el-ano-del-mochuelo.html . To get to his other posts, go to http://mariocea-fotofauna.blogspot.com/. To see the full post, you need to click on 'LEER MAS' at the bottom right of each post. You might also find the blog of his group of photographic friends of interest. You can find that at http://quedadanatural.blogspot.com/
