Short Eared Owl at Soil Hill Sunday 8/3/15

We went up to look for the Snow Bunting on Sunday afternoon after the rain stopped. My partner Kathy has never seen one. She still hasn't, but we were lucky enough to flush this Short Eared Owl right in front of us on the east of the mounds, which flew a little way off and perched on a wall.   Time approx 16.45.

It was clear enough to see the White Horse of Kilburn way off across the Vale of York, but it came and went as light changed on the Howardian Hills.
