Long Eared Owl

i was with my partner today walking around the Hunterston lagoon saw bull finch and Brambling very nice along the road upto the windmill site. Got into car and went towards the Power Station and slowed by the pond on the land side of road to see this guy sitting on the fence stopped car he moved up a tad but i got this picture i have a lot more. The Owl then flew off north i clearly disturbed it by stopping. this is view of its back with head turned. thought you would like to see this i now have seen all native species of Owl  in Ayrshire. near around West Kilbride oh it was between 11.30 am and 12 noon
