I had a nice evening out Owling. Headed to a site that traditionally holds a few pairs of Long-eared Owls (as many as 7 this year I believe). We had excellent views as always of 2 birds; 1 bird from a pair that nests near and abandoned tip and 1 bird near an abandoned railway track.
The first bird I picked up was out hunting at 08.10 and it was still daylight; excellent to watch. Also strange to see a Swallow having a go at it. We had a few other excellent views of them before we retired for the evening at about 9.30.
I love Long-eared Owls me, definitely my favourite of them all. Barn Owl is nice yeah, but still I prefer Long-eared Owl.
Until next time, Foghorn out!
