Dark-breasted Barn Owl on a boat!

Technically not in Devon - but interesting nevertheless!

This apparent guttata Dark-breasted Barn Owl spent 12 hours resting on a trawler 38 miles south of Plymouth on 26th October. It was seen and photographed by Fred Bartlett. Thanks must go to Kevin Hale for getting the news and photo to me.

I wonder where it is now?
