Not satisfied with captive owls, I set off at 4pm for the Owl Country at Hawton Works site. It was a clear evening, with none of the horrendous chilling rain I had suffered on my previous visit.
The sky was still blue when I started, but a deep indigo when I returned. Of owls there were none, but a flock of long tailed tits on the cycle path could not fail to lift the spirits, and a buzzard decided it didn't like the look of my hi-viz, leaving its perch for a languid flight across the fields.
There are owls out there, I know. One day, I will find them..

It's a lovely area. You will probably come across your owls when you are least expecting them.ReplyDelete
