An Old Friend returns

I did have a walk today in decent weather and saw a Red Kite and a very vocal Raven.

However the highlight was when putting our recycled rubbish outside for early collection.  Suddenly I heard the unmistakable hissing call of a Barn Owl coming from the back of our property.  The I heard it again but over our lane.  This is terrific becasue we used to have nesting Barn Owls here but they last nested in the roof of the Chapel.  Then the roof was repaired and we have not seen them for at least four years.  We have put up a number of nest boxes in the village so now we might be in luck.  Let's hope so.
