When I said that the barn had blown down and crushed the old nestbox (See "Happy anyway"), I wasn't kidding. Raking through the debris in the box, we came across the skeleton of a long dead Barn Owl and an egg that was almost entire. This is what birding is really all about. Isn't it?
Trolling round the fen yesterday to gather Barn Owl pellets from various barns for school projects, I was rewarded with excellent views of a "ringtail" Harrier. This is what birding is really all about. Yes, it is.
