Long-Eared Owl in Flight

Long-eared Owl in Flight

Long-eared Owl

Long-eared Owls are usually nocturnal, so I was extremely lucking to witness and photograph this long-eared owl in flight early one morning whilst walking near Druridge Bay in Northumberland. I’m guessing the rain through the night prevented this owl from hunting and was forced to search for food during daylight, luckily for me!

I watched this owl for thirty minutes or so flying back and forth, occasionally landing on a distant fence post, where I could clearly see its long ear tufts. This photograph was taken as it passed by close to where I was standing.

This photograph is available to buy as a mounted or framed print and as a greeting card. Long-eared Owl Print
