On Sunday I found my 15th Little Owl site (I started with my first site just under a year ago), but the weather was dull, grey, and drizzly. The following day, I was out that way again, buying garden bird food, so dropped in once more. It had been bright and sunny when I set off, but it suddenly got dull again as I approached. The Owl was there again, but no photos were taken. Today, the memsahib decided that we'd go to a garden centre to buy some Christmas gifts, etc. It was another bright and sunny day so off we went to a place just beyond the new LO site. Having done the shopping we headed for the Owl - and it greyed over! However, the light was not as bad as the previous two visits. The Owl was soon located near to where it had been on the previous visits - in its nest hole!! I took a few photos and then decided to leave it in peace, and come back another day when there was some sunshine.
Little Owl - my site No.15
Having got back to the car, where my wife was patiently waiting we set off to go home. We'd only got about 400 metres when the sun came out. I quickly found a place to turn round and go back. The Owl had moved out of the hole and was on a branch just above the nest hole (the hole to the left is a red herring!).
