GARDEN MEGA FOR ME

TAWNY OWL IN GARDEN



While I was looking on the internet I could hear an Owl close by outside so I decided to take a wonder into the garden at first couldn't see anything then put the torch on.

Then I heard the bottom feeders clatter and I couldn't believe my eyes I had just flushed a tawny owl off the top of my feeders, just as I was walking back in I heard the owl call again but this time he/she had a reply.

I moved my torch round and there it was sitting on the top of my neighbours shed it was there for a further 5 or so minutes calling and replying to the other

Hope this is a pair and they will use the Owl box a couple of us set up 3 years ago it's placed in a tree just at the bottom of my garden just by the brook.

Peregrine from the garden Adrian? Wow!! Never happened here, but I have had many happy hours watching the mad March hares in the field at the end of the garden. Six of them this morning, hareing about like only hares can - a joy to watch. Yesterday was even better, because the sun was shining.

Enjoy Chester Zoo.

Used to be able to see Rabbits and young foxes running in the fields just over the brook at the bottom of the garden years ago but now the tree's have grown can hardly see the fields at all unless I stand at the very bottom of the garden would love to be able to see Hares must be great to watch.
