Tawny Owl

This Tawny Owl (Strix aluco) was taking part in a flying demonstration at the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Andover, Hampshire, on a visit in May 2016.

The Tawny Owl is widespread throughout England, Wales, and Scotland. They are nocturnal, and hunt small mammals and rodents. They are known for their "twit twoo" call, which is actually one owl answering the call of another.
