I went for a walk tonight and I was startled by a super weird animal call. It sounded like a small dog barking with a muffled voice but then I realised it was coming up from the trees. So I remembered barn owls. But it wasn't one. I've just finished watching a YouTube video of 12 different owls and their calls and the mystery has been solved: it was a short eared owl. Fascinating.
