User's notes

Came across a group of noisy minors going off at a hollow... I've previously seen a boobook within 50 metres of that area 3 times on dusk. Climbed the fence and used my lens to get a photo thar showed the top of its head. It emerged after nearly 2 hours. Very hard to tell if it has 1 or 2 eyes can provide numerous angles and shots to check.
