I thought that Alan Garner’s book would be a good title for today’s blog. I went looking for Short-eared Owls late afternoon yesterday by the River. I didn’t see any but spotted a Barn Owl instead. However, this morning as I was driving across the Common on my way to football I was surprised to see a Short-eared Owl being mobbed by crows. They are super birds to watch.
The day went downhill after that magical moment. Sadly my football team lost to a very ugly team well versed in the dark arts of game management. It is always the hope that gets you!
