I’ve never seen our latest visitor before on the reserve and what a magnificent bird it is:-
The Long Eared Owl was soaking up the sun on a Saturday afternoon. It seemed pretty chilled, I watched it for about 30 minutes.
My bird expert tells me its very unusual to see them out so early as they are one our most nocturnal birds.
The second picture was taken the very next day at the same time and exactly the same place!
