My long awaited Serbia Winter Owl Trip is underway and day one was absolutely awesome. Today was spent in the Rusanda area as well as the owl capital of the world – Kikinda. Of course, Long-eared Owls were the order of the day!
However, by far the biggest surprise of the day was a young female Wild Cat seen by chance along the roadside on the way to Kikinda. It was hiding in a ditch trying to conceal itself from a shepherd and his dogs that were a mere hundred yards away in the next field.
I managed to grab a couple of shots before it slunk away. It was my first ever Wild Cat and totally unexpected!
Here’s to more owls tomorrow!
