Large pale bird of prey, Wensleydale
I was driving through Wensleydale near Askrigg last Wednesday (26th October), when I saw a very pale almost white bird, which at first I thought was a barn owl, flying across a field. It then landed in a tree above the road and as I passed under it, I could clearly (but briefly!) see that it was a largish bird of prey, but definitely NOT an owl (nor a gull!).
Just wondering if anyone else had seen this or if anyone has any ideas what it could have been.
