I couldn't resist to return to the Long-eared Owl site. The Owl sketched some days ago perched exactly on the same spot (well, 10 cms to the right).
I had to return home earlier, so could finish only the bird. I think I'll go back on a similar dull day, and complete the background.

Fantastic both, though it is obvious that the second one is much more detailed!
I wish I could be there with you!
You must feel very lucky Szabi finding such roosts.
Looking forward to see the drawing completed now!

Thanks a lot!! I'll try to complete it next week.
We have quite a lot of LE Owl roost all over the country. Eg. within 5 kms circle I know 4 different ones.
But it cannot be compared with the roosts in Serbia. I've heard that they can be found in every village. One roost can even hold 500 birds. My friend, Gerard Gorman has seen 50 birds in one tree.

Keep sketching! :-D
Good work!
