20th June 2020 : Oare Marshes
Long eared Owl.
After spending a very pleasant day in East Sussex watching Common Redstart, Tree Pipit, Siskin & Crossbill among many other birds , i received a txt message from MW (many thanks) informing me of a Long eared Owl showing near the car park at Oare marshes.
I was soon heading there and joining the already assembled local birders , the LEO had dropped down into the reed bed and only the head was visible , i had seen it and was thinking that this is a typical view of a LEO .
As you can see by the assorted photos the Long eared Owl eventually showed fantastically well out in the open , mostly snoozing but keep it's eyes & ears on it's admiring audience.
This superb bird was a new addition to my Oare Marsh bird list.
