Short Ears

Short Ears
by Andy Davey from Bideford GB on 27 Jan 2018

These are Short-eared owls from Exmoor on the North Devon border. The Owls visit each winter before migrating probably to Scandinavia. They hunt over the long grass looking for field voles and mice. Breeding numbers have declined in recent years, so it's great to see 3 or 4 pairs on Exmoor putting on a lovely show most afternoons. These photos were taken in a two hour period one Friday afternoon. Seeing a Short-eared owl is certainly a memorable sight.
