Long-eared Owl - Asio otus Wessel 2021-06-13 Schoorl, Bovenweg (near Schoorl), Bergen, Noord-Holland, Noord-Holland (Netherlands) (10 m) adult, call, female -

End of hot spring day, hardly any wind.

To me this harsh aggressive version of Vvvw call indicates a female nearby a nest though the nest was not seen in this case, nor were juveniles heard. So sex is not 100% certain. But the years before this was the case in this area.

Owl was not on the nest, but low in the tree. The night before in a different one.
