This is a breed of Long Eared Owl, (which particular species, I am not sure) although the tufts on his head aren't actually his ears just long feathers. I think he is a most handsome chap and I hope you like him too.
Many thanks for all the C&C's on my uploads, every one is very much appreciated.
Steve.

ps. If you know the exact name for him let me know, please, Thanks.
