#100!! ITS A BELTER

well i thought #100 would be a wader how wrong i was.
i headed to the bracken to check for any warblers,when a owl flew up from just below me.the photo below was taken straight away,its crap but you can tell its a long eared owl!

the nearest woodland is 2 miles away so it must be young bird moved on by its parents,it circled above me for a minute then dropped into the bracken some way off.
