This Long-eared Owl was a surprise find by Ben Miller and Rob Andrews as they stopped the car to check on some Common Gulls in a field.  The owl was very obliging and not at all disturbed by birders, cars and tractors and it stayed around for several local birders to see.  For more details and to see Lee Evans article on Long-eared Owls in Bucks click here.
