I have been planning to go to another site where there have been up to 6 short eared owls this winter. This week there have only been two birds present. After doing an early start at work, I turned up at the site and set 5 mist nets. We didn't have to wait long before a short eared owl was in one of the nets. The bird was aged as an adult and sexed as a male on it's weight. To make things better on the last net round we found a barn owl in the bottom shelf. It was a control so I am looking forward to finding out where the bird was originally trapped. Photos to be posted soon.
