Long-eared Owls were regularly roosting during the day on Portland at the Naval Cemetery. It’s probably the hardest of the resident 5 British owls to see and so I headed down to Portland. With other people already there I was fairly quickly able to find a roosting owl.
It’s great to be able to take your time with a sketch knowing that the subject is unlikely to move much. In fact the owl only moved once in the 45 minutes I was there and that was to glance at me briefly.
