Hi all 😁 and welcome to Animals in Scots #1: Hoolet — Owl.
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
If any of you out there want to know the name of a particular animal in Scots, let me know!
As I do these posts, I am learning as well; so I apologise in advance for any mistakes ☺️
Hae a guid day 😁
