Eagle Owl

I had an interesting email from someone about the Eagle Owl in King's Lynn who said the following:

"Everyone assumes it must be an escape but it may well be 'wild' as for the last few years escaped/released owls have been breeding in the north of England and it is also known that the young disperse as one which was ringed I believe struck power lines in Shropshire. This could well be a young bird from a previous breeding season, especially as it appears not to carry any rings. It is a super bird and I remember meeting the late Phillip Ware's 'Bubu' up close at Great Witchingham many years ago....."
