Another very short blog from me today as it’s Valentine’s day and time to be concentrating on other things. Dawn and I have had a lovely, relaxed time and made the most of it with food, fun, laughter and even a bit of walking as the sub-zero temperatures are finally taking their leave. OK, the rain’s arrived and we got a bit wet, but what the hell – it’s better than freezing!

Today’s picture was taken yesterday. The pair of us headed over to the Bolster Moor farm shop to pick up supplies for today’s meal. On the way back Dee spotted this critter foraging for food in a field by the side of the road so we pulled up and spent half an hour watching this beautiful Barn Owl’s aerobatics.

We often hear Owls in the woods surrounding our house but never get to see them, so spotting one out in the open like this was really exciting. Thankfully, I’d packed the camera in the car ‘just in case’…

I’ve a favour to ask…
If you enjoy reading this blog, please click on an advert or two. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to of course (although if you did find something that tickled your fancy that would be fab!), but the revenue from them helps to cover some of the cost of maintaining this site – and right now (because of Covid), us freelances need all the help that we can get. Remember, 99% of the pictures used in my blogs can be purchased as prints from my other website –  https://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/

Thank you!
