From the Archives... No. 28

Long-eared Owl, Star Pit LNR, Peterborough, 5 December 2005

Today, I added Long-eared Owl to my local year-list with two birds on the island ont he main lake at Deeping Lakes LWT. Luckily, these birds (presumably the same pair which were there last year), haven't completely abandoned the area despite the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust volunteers carrying out some extreme pruning a matter of yards from their spot on the island. These people are among the most misguided conservationists around these parts... Anyhow, the viewl was distant but good, not unlike this bird, but further away.
