The Tawny Owl (strix aluco)
The Tawny Owl one of the most well known of our resident owls;the other being the Barn Owl.
This in fact is the owl that 'hoots' although it will often resort to a loud 'yapping' call.
It's a beautiful bird and I do hope you like it. It looks so well camouflaged peering from the hole in this log.
Many thanks indeed for all the generous c/c's for the Chaffinch and particular thanks to Steve (sparrowhawk) for the UA.
