BARNSTABLE – Snowy owls were spotted on the far end of Sandy Neck last weekend.

Barnstable Natural Resources Officers Chris Nappi and Donna Bragg both noticed the owls.

A record number of the birds were seen last winter causing residents to head to the beach to catch a glimpse, according to Barnstable Town Manager Thomas Lynch.

There is no way to know whether this year will be a repeat of last year’s visit, he said.
