Sitting Snowy Owl

Snowy Owl Eyes
A snowy owl has been spotted in and around the Cornish town of St Ives, making it the first appearance of the snowy owl in the south of England since 1948.

Snowy owls are normally found inhabiting areas within the Arctic Circle such as Russia, Canada and Greenland and are only rarely seen outside of the Arctic Circle when they cannot find food within their natural habitat.

Birdwatchers from all over the United Kingdom have been flocking down to Cornwall to get a closer look at the largest owl species native to Europe, which has remained hunting on the Cornish coast 1,000 miles from the Arctic Circle, for around a month.
