standing just inside the gateway of the rough water meadow at the bottom of Cake’s Lane at midday today, I noticed two oddly shaped white objects on the lower branches of an oak along the boundary with the track. focusing more as I walked towards them I could see they were a pair of barn owls. backtracking down the lane towards the back of the trees I just managed to catch this photograph before the owl decided I was too close and flew off. I watched the pair floating over the long grass of the meadow for a while. ideal habitat for barn owls. we see them a lot round here.
