Today I made a trip to Bragate Park to follow up a good tip from LROS (Leicester Rutland Ornithological Society) membership secertary Ken Goodrich that he had sighted Little Owls in and around an old oak tree near to the ruins. Upon arrival the quite pleasant flutters of light snow showers turned to a freezing slush that stung the face into a red raw blister, that was it
.............the little owl search was aborted!
So after returning and having nothing to post I decided to try and warm myself up by uploading an image from last spring of a juv little owl enjoying sunnier times!
