Wow there are some great photos in this thread! And I love that the larks and pipits and cisticolas are not being overlooked. (Anne-marie your ID skills amaze me!! :D )

Here are two of my best point-and-shoot efforts, not a patch on the other photos here, but I hope you like them!

Fledgling spotted eagle owl feeling a bit hot- found him while looking for the leopard Meira at Montrose last summer (I think a lot of people saw these guys)

Tawny with some sandgrouse (same location)
