On the evening I was out camping at some fishing (story and pics in the write ups section) I was joined by an owl. Now owls are something I very rarely see, maybe twice in my life, and they are usually small and light coloured. However this thing was big, mostly darkish brown, and it came and landed on the moor close to my tent and seemed to be keen to study what was going on.
Of course it is hard to judge these things in the very last of the light and this would have been at least an hour, maybe more, after sunset.
Anyone care to venture what sort of owl it might have been? This was on the Isle of Lewis and is mostly moorland habitat.
