Hoo hoo

I was letting Bunty out for her 400th wee of the day before bed last night when I saw a movement high in the tree ( a big Elm) at the bottom of our garden alongside the main road. How happy was I when I saw that it was a Tawny Owl. It just sat quite high up, looking down at us for five minutes before flying off towards the next trees along the main road.

Although I hear them all the time from my garden this is the first I've actually seen anywhere near. I have often wondered where the birds in my village live because there aren't many woods around. They must be in one of the larger gardens without access I expect.

Well, they hoot in there but there are no good roost or nest sites in there. Its quite sparse when you are inside...
