Sunday, August 10

an owl visitor!

a couple of weekends ago. . .
a summery Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock to be precise

we noticed a visitor in the garden

sitting on the fence post surveying the surrounding field.

Very happy to have his photo taken, he posed this way and that
so the camera caught his best profile
before flying across the field to perch on the roadside fence
where he nearly caused a pile-up as cars slowed in amazement.

After half an hour spent hunting in the field
he had a well earned rest in the oak tree
next to the house

before gracefully swooping down
and silently taking his leave.

Doesn't get much better than that does it?

He is beautiful! How lucky you were to see him so close and for so long. The boys and l had a lovely meeting with a fox cub getting very close last week, still makes me smile and feel happy to think about it. Wish you a great Sunday, Pam xx

(Are you sure you don't live in a nature reserve Elaine?) we hear the owls by us but I've never seen one actually in the wild, only at a show, he's beautiful. x
