Andy Webb was one very lucky chap on Thursday when he was bumped into by this magnificent Long-eared Owl as it got pushed about by the local Magpies. He watch it for a while before it found suitable refuge.
Unsurprisingly it has not been seen since and I suspect it is a local bird just ranging a little bit more widely than usual but remember ro check any late evening Shorties that you see over the coming days as you too could be grinning!
