A wander north round the edge of the City of Sunderland
|I saw it first for a change - how folk get so close to these little b~~~~ers is a mystery to me.....|
Very fortunate to find this Long-eared sitting rather openly in a semi-mature Ash within a thorn copse
|another site i dont get to very often, but hit on lucky|
|even though hes roosting within the open canopy of an Ash, theres allways twigs & branches in the way|
|Long-eared Owl pellets - easily identified, as they often seem to regurgitate pound coins ;-)|
Headed back & got into place to see distant views of Barn Owl in the half light - day light hunting Barnies allways a scarce commodity round here for some strange reason.....
Thats all 5 seen over the last 2 days.
