Unexpected visitor update.


A short rest to let my dinner go down.

A short rest to let my dinner go down.

Just recently the BTO sent us information on the Barn owl that we had to visit. For starters he is a she,  Jac felt   he was a she at time.She was very gently with us except when she court my hand with her claw. It was only a light touch but cut my finger quit badly. The man from Weirfield Hospital said  you need to be very  carefull of their feet. That is why falconer ware gloves.

She is a young bird at three years plus.  We do not know if she has been re-released back into the wild one day we may come out of the workshop,  to find her sitting on the fence looking down at us.

While on the subject of  wild life, this year so far has been quite good for spotting rare birds, I say rare because I’m not a bird watcher looking to spot fowl. On several occasions whilst walking the fat controller (our border trolley) we have seen a white heron in the small stream between the houses.  A first ever for me and the area. To add to that on two occasion in the same place we have seen a kingfisher’s sudden flash of blue as it disappears up the stream into the distance.
