A triple owl sequence of events

Wow, three species of owl in 20 minutes just now!1)

A Barn Owl was quartering the field north of Ravensden Road at the west end of Renhold at 3.45pm and was perched in a hedge on the north side of the field as I returned at 4.15pm.

2) A Short-eared Owl was perched on the fence at the north end of Thurleigh Airfield, just west of the dead end road from Keysoe Row West at 4.00pm, then hunting the arable field adjacent.

3) Two Little Owls were perched on the chimney of the rather dilapidated farmhouse at the north end of Hatch Lane, Keysoe at 4.05pm.
