Man on a mission.......Cutting out.
The assembly starts.
Looking good now, Colin screwing the final pieces together.
Yours truly slapping on the wood stain.
A few hours later they were completed, a fine pair of whoppers.
It had been a good productive morning although it took a little longer than we anticipated, I'm sure the next few we make will take half the time. A couple more coats of wood preserve will be slapped on during the week and then all being well both boxes will be put up next weekend. These are just the first two boxes of many, and these wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for all the kind folk who have made donations or purchased one of my Little Owl calendars, your help is very much appreciated, a MASSIVE thank you from both Colin and myself........and of course the Owls!
Whilst on the drive back home a suspicious looking blob was seen in a roadside tree, after a quick emergency stop and reverse we got out to investigate further. Oh yes a Little Owl and new site No 137!!!
Sadly I didn't have my zoom lens with me today so no close up image was possible, I had to do with taking this image from the car, can you see the owl?
This is the same image as above but the centre portion has been blown up, really poor quality I know but the head and shoulders of the owl can just be made out on the right hand side of the hole in the centre of the image.
I wasn't going to improve on the Little Owl image with the kit I'd got with me so it was time to go, just as I got back into the car a Barn Owl flew straight across in front of me, OMG!!!!! In an instant I jumped out and rattled off a few shots before it disappeared into a nearby wood.
Sadly all I got of the Barn Owl was this distant rear end view
What with new Little Owl & Barn Owl sites at the same location, guess where I will be going soon........?
