mon 27th November, 2006 Snowy Owl Brue - Isle of Lewis - Outer Hebrides I went and I found the snowy within 10mins and only 100 mtrs from where I was looking last week...I'm sure I could of got a lot closer to the bird but not wanting to spook it I kept my distance it was awesome! I'm well chuffed. I've had a good couple of days I went out for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon and debated... to go on the snowy hunt or to check out the goldies and opted for the eagles in the 2 hours I spotted a goldie a white-tailed sea eagle and 12 buzzards. I guess it was my lucky weekend. Andy L
