Both-eared Owls near Ynyslas

Last night whilst ringing waders at Ynyslas I caught a female Short-eared Owl that has been hunting the high-tide roost at the point since at least 24th January and may have been the same one seen in the dunes opposite the caravan park in December.

Last week I also caught this Long-eared Owl whilst ringing Woodcock near Llancynfelin.

Hopefully neither will be taken out to dine by an Eagle Owl!!
