Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Something just a little different from me, this morning.

In our village we have a garden festival in late spring. As part of the attraction, and to educate and enthuse the youngsters, we usually invite local bird experts to set up a stand where they demonstrate and talk about birds of prey.

This was one of the birds that was part of the display. I think he's looking hungrily at YOU, though I assure you he wasn't hungry!

I'm pretty sure he was an eagle owl. His eyes were enormous by comparison with other birds and explain why he can see so well at night, his normal hunting time.

I hope exposure to these birds, and information about their conservation, will, in some way, set a desire in the children, as they grow older, to care for wild creatures in general.

Have a great Sunday,
Bev :-)
