No, not anything to do with political aspirations, but an owl sighting. On 21st April, 2010 I saw two Little Owls in a tree at the edge of my local patch, and designated this to be my Site No.10. Since then I've passed this way several times a week and not seen an owl there again. My nearest LO site to No.10 is approximately 400 metres away, where I had ten sightings of a solitary owl between April and July, 2011 (but again, nothing since).
Early last week I passed Site No.10 and was dismayed to see that the tree had come down in the gales of Sunday 29th April. I commented to my wife as we passed that now I'd never see an owl again in that tree. You can imagine my surprise, therefore, when today (just a few days later) I spotted a Little Owl in the tree on the opposite side of the road to the fallen tree!
I stopped the car and took a few record shots, and watched from a distance. Unfortunately, within a few minutes, it started raining and the owl, in typical LO fashion, flew off, dropping below the hedge line as it did so, so I never saw where it ended up.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm going to consider this a new sighting at No.10!
