Long-eared Owls

I forgot to write about my evening out on Monday. It was infinitely more enjoyable (from my point of view), than last Thursday (too much pizza + cheesecake + small but not very potent quantity of alcohol = intense nausea).

Anyway... Got to site. Sat down. Waited until the correct time. Watched hunting Long-eared Owl in the golden evening light as it glided past - unperturbed by human presence - only metres away: orange eyes, ear tufts, distinctive wing markings, moth-like, deep, soft wingbeats - the works! Owlets squeaking away from the nest site nearby.

Magic.
