GWCT Species of the Month - Long Eared Owl
This month GWCT's Megan Lock takes a look at the Long Eared Owl. Said to be our most nocturnal owl, the long-eared owl is seldomly seen hunting during daylight hours.
The long-eared owl has mottled orange-brown feathers, distinct white eyebrows and striking orange eyes. It has large ‘ear tufts’, which are normally flattened but become raised when the owl is alarmed.
