A British ornithologist working in Oman was able to track the unfamiliar hoots of a bird previously unknown to science.
A British ornithologist and his team have discovered a completely new species of owl while on a research expedition in Oman.
The bird, previously unknown to science, is slightly bigger than a tawny owl and has been named the Omani Owl.
It was first spotted in a remote mountainous region of the Middle Eastern country while sound-recordist and author Magnus Robb, 43, formerly from Edinburgh, was studying another species in March.
