Re: UWOL37 - The results

Mick! (As a tribute to Matt...) I'm "gobsmacked!"

Do I need to win in order to receive a gift like this again? I love owls, but I absolutely swoon over a small one. That's fantastic, Mick and how amazing you caught that on film as you did. Is it a Northern Saw-whet? Or Pigmy owl?

My one and only encounter with a Northern Saw-whet owl was in my very own hen compound. It's a covered compound and apparently one had been trapped in the covered space for a stint but it was only after our encounter did I notice the signs of it living there (a true sign of a wildlife filmmaker!). The encounter was magical for me. I had finished putting in the hens for the evening and had made my way back to the house when I remembered I had left something behind. It was a warm spring evening and getting fairly dark by this time. When I returned, there it was sitting on a stool. It was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. Naturally, I opened the door to the compound very wide and we bid our farewells to each other as it soared out the door into the night sky.

Thanks for the gesture and the memory! I had forgotten about that!

Cat

Re: UWOL37 - The results

Cat, pleased you are pleased!

Its a "Little Owl" Athene noctua. Its an introduced species, although most non birders are not aware of that believing it to be a British native species. Here is a little info from the British Trust for Ornithology explaining.

The Little Owl is a non-native, first introduced in the late 1800s by rich landowners who thought that the species would be a useful addition to our native avifauna. Many of the early attempts to introduce Little Owls into Britain failed, the owls dying soon after release, but a series of releases that took place at Stonewall Park, near Edenbridge in Kent, saw the Little Owl become established, with the first successful breeding recorded in 1879. The population began to grow and soon saw birds become established in neighbouring counties. Further releases elsewhere in Britain also had a part to play, particularly those that took place in Northamptonshire in the late 1880s, and by 1909 the Little Owl was breeding as far north as Derbyshire, reaching Wales in 1916 and Scotland in 1958. Today the Little Owl is largely restricted to England, with the greatest numbers to be found in the south-east of the country.

Mick

Re: UWOL37 - The results

Congratulations Cat & Mick,
2 Great films amongst a bunch of really fantastic films. This was a surprisingly hard theme this round, & while i never had the time to put too much thought into it, the time i did, i was completely stuck. I think this round really showed the talent around here with so many different takes on the theme & all of a high standard.
Well done to everyone!!

Re: UWOL37 - The results

Well done Cat and Mick. Well deserved from your strong entries - no surprise to see your names at the top of this round. Was definitely a challenging topic being so open ended, and making a deliberate and cohesive piece for those that finished is definitely an achievement. As opposed to mine - I don't claim that mine was well thought out or executed, just enough Shark repellent and a bit of Rule #11.

Hopefully we'll have a larger field of finishers in the April round. I plan on doing a proper film this time around.

And thanks Trond and Chris for keeping this going - UWOL/DVinfo.
