Winter Woodpecker

I photographed this leucistic woodpecker in Hungary a few days ago. There is not much snow about but it does seem that this bird decided to get into the festive season spirit!
Best Wishes to Everyone!

Long-eared Owl in the open

It was sub zero today in Hungary, but out we went. We checked some likely spots for roosting Long-eared Owls to the south of Budapest, and found a few. This chap here was incredible, despite having a choice of trees, including some very cosy looking conifers, he was sat out, exposed in a bare tree, above a garden gate and a barking dog.
