This wasn't going to be my post for today, but we had a visitor last night and Chris was clever and quick enough to film it.
During the day we had been watching an eagle, circling and swooping around in the valley, but this evening this huge owl suddenly appeared. We have heard the odd hoot now and again but its the first time we have seen one here.
Look at his huge claws
We do get concerned for the furries when huge birds like this appear, some of ours are quite light and tiny, no match for talons
