A night-time photographer reveals the behaviours of shy nocturnal animals at night.  His photographs show a tawny owl, otters and a heron against a striking black backdrop of the night sky.<br />
<br />
The creatures hunt and play around a pond near Bourne in Lincolnshire.  An otter pup cries at the side of a pond while its mother catches fish to feed it, and the owl flies over a field of teasel wildflower stems as it hunts for mice.<br />

Photographer Gavin Bickerton-Jones, 57, sat in a wildlife hide for 17 hours overnight and set up cameras around the pond to take the pictures.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
