A wonderful close encounter today with the local Barn owls, I was very surprised to see them in this wind and he was mostly sitting in the grass trying to get shelter rather than flying.
I was not too warm myself to be honest Smile, and only just starting to thaw out with a glass of red wine, yum yum.
