Night owl

Barn owl! Just south of Pillerton Hersey last night, gliding beautifully across the lane in the car headlights.

They are known to nest nearby, though the best view was some years ago when one flew in front of the car, at dusk, all the way down the road from the turn-off to Fulready to the Fosse Way junction above Halford. Truly memorable!

A barn owl was also spotted recently on the road running south from Walton Hall.
