When we grow up we’re going to be Tawny Owls……
…………..but in the meantime we know we look like hand-puppets knitted by someone who is using knitting needles for the first time, and then turned inside out!
Most of the best sightings we’ve had over the years have been birds pointed out to us by generous fellow-birdwatchers with far more experience/knowledge/patience than we’ll ever have.
These Tawny Owlets were high in their tree deep in a wood, known only to a local birdwatcher who had been observing them (from a safe distance) since they hatched. Thank you John! Without your help, we’d never had seen these gorgeous babies.
The magic of birdwatching!
