Owl-less, brief visit

Long-eared seen Monday at 4.30pm - thanks to Ian Hartley for the record.

Despite getting a soaking on my way home and it being rather windy I couldn't resist that fact that I had about half an hour of decentish light left and headed down to the pools where I bumped into Guy. He'd been there around 40 minutes and hadn't seen anything. A woodcock came over but we saw no owls - hardly surprising given the conditions! Mind you, a tawny owl was hooting from Freeman's Wood...

Having seen some photos from Sunday afternoon/evening it would appear that only long-eared was on show - can anyone who was there confirm whether short-eared was definitely seen?
