Look what we "found" out in the yard, perched on a wire just above the washing line. Not an every day sight for us and so dispite the cold the boys kept it company for quite a few minutes!
At first we were creeping about really quietly,unsure if it would fly away at the sound of our excited voices.
But we soon realised it wasn't interested in us at all but on the lookout for small furry beasties that hide in the potager. I am more than happy for our visitor to collect its dinner in our yard. The boys watched as I said and then were momentarily distracted and when they turned back our guest had gone;silently just as it had arrived without even an introduction. The boys think it may have been an immature barking owl.
