New bird for the house list

A quick scan of the marshes before work produced 2 Marsh Harriers and a Common Buzzard for me but it was my husband who scored yet again when he flushed a Long-eared Owl from an ivy-covered tree at the end of the garden late morning. Sadly the bird disappeared in to a neighbours wood and hasn't been seen again. This was a first for the house list and completes the set of common British owls. Fingers crossed this beautiful bird returns to its roost site overnight but I won't be holding my breath
