Twit Twoo

Finally after living at this house for 10 years and hearing them I've finally seen an owl in the woods behind the house!  Heard it around 8.45pm-ish and walked down the back path following the sound and got lucky! There it was on a low branch until it saw me and flew off. Done a bit of research in younger daughter's guide to British birds and I reckon it's a tawny owl.

Found a picture of one to show you. I was so thrilled. It's given me a huge amount of pleasure.  See I'm so easily pleased.  The bats are also back. I think they are most likely to be common Pipistelle bats. They are lovely to see as they dart about in the twilight. I think they might roost in our roof.
