A SEARCH for an escaped eagle owl has moved away from Ipswich after the bird was spotted in a wood near Sudbury.

The missing owl, which has a five-and-a-half foot wingspan, remains on the loose two days after she escaped from an Ipswich garden, despite her owner's best efforts in tracking her down.

Speaking to The Evening Star, the owner said last night he was chasing the bird through a wood close to Sudbury. Because he was frantically chasing the bird he did not know his exact whereabouts.

Several sightings of the bird were made in the north Ipswich area after she made a break for freedom from her home, in Valley Road, on Monday.

“There's a lot of people out looking for her and I appreciate that. I did track her down to a tree in the Broomhill Road area but she didn't want to know. She had a full belly and wasn't interested in my bait.

”But we're continuing to look.”

Tiny was kept with her brother Samson in Valley Road. Both of the birds are nine months old.
