As the perfect place to perch, it must have been the answer to their prayers.

Three inquisitive young barn owls used this lofty window for an early evening surveillance mission in a Norfolk churchyard.

Standing in the stone quatrefoil of Christ Church, Fulmodeston, they were keeping a beady eye open for a tasty snack of mouse, vole or shrew.

Wildlife photographer Richard Brooks waited patiently night after night to capture the owls, which had been seen making night-time flights in the churchyard, in perfect formation.

 

His efforts were rewarded when he saw the trio looking out from the opening at the very top of the church.

'They are naturally inquisitive birds,' he said. 'Part of it is food related, but they are also interested by any sounds – so they probably were looking for me.'
