Spot the owl

Thu, 30th Jan 2014

I'm definitely never going to make a wildlife photographer, but believe me, on the lower branch on the left of the olive tree is an owl.

Walking around the garden I noticed some owl pellets under the tree and looking carefully up I spotted the one owl in my photo. What I didn't realise was that there were about fifteen more of his family in the tree too, who flew away in all directions far too fast for a photo.

The owl definitely had ears which were quite noticeable, so I think it was either a Scops or a Long Eared owl; I will look more closely next time I'm near that tree.
