Owl Surprise

This beautiful Short-eared Owl was a very pleasant first for me at the WWT London. It flew in across the main lake but didn't stay.





Unfortunately, having arrived at the site, it was quickly hassled by several Jackdaws, a magpie and even a Heron joined in.  As a result it departed to the south.


 
The owl (or a separate bird) was present an hour later briefly but was again mobbed and forced high before departing.
