In the spotlight...


Headlights really. On the way home from work tonight I was pleased I took the decision to use the A1 rather than the coastal route. As I came off the small sliproad roundabout at Stannington, I noticed a very nice Long eared Owl perched on top of a verge-side bush, nicely lit by overhead lights and car headlights.

The long 'ear' feathers were blown forward by the breeze giving it a very distinctive outline.

A brief but great view of a lovely bird...

New headlight technology is hids beams in digital format that are controlled by a computer. "Instead of talking about a lot of light all over [the road], we want to put smart light out where you need the light," said Mahendra Dassanayake, staff technical specialist at Ford Motor Co. "It would work like a laptop computer, projecting images."
