Lesvos owls

These were all taken in a built up area, near a junior school and some flats, the owls were roosting and nesting in some very large eucalyptus trees and they were great to see. As soon as you showed your face, the four Long eared owlets immediately checked you out until something more interesting caught their eye. the parents were always near at hand in case a predator appeared. The Scops owl in the top picture was wonderfully camouflaged, and anyone wanting to 'find' one roosting had a hard time, luckily I was put onto these by birders who wee already on site.
