Although the best characer to distinguish between the two species (the presence or absence of trousered legs) is mostly obscured I am confident that it is a Barn Owl. I lightened the picture and the characteristic colouration of a Barn Owl was evident. The one leg that is partly visible (which looks miniature) is also not trousered.
