Not a Mystery owl photo

Cut & pasted from The Gateshead Birders website :-

where its labelled as a Short-eared Owl . . .

This is the same pic, unaltered other than re-sizing:-

wing shape, colouration & markings on outer parts of upper wing, facial disc colouration, underparts one similar colour

(white trailing edge on upper wing a mis-leading photo effect as same white can also be seen on forewing & rear underside)

Certainly a Long-eared Owl
