On Saturday morning the 28th July I walked down to Bere Marsh and the Trailway with Tilly early in the morning. It had rained a little during the night, at last our long dry very hot spell had broken. I hadn’t really thought about seeing the resident Barn Owl but I shouldn’t have been surprised when I spotted him on a post near Bere Marsh Farm. When it is wet in the night it is often the case the Owl will hunt later into the morning. Although a little distant I watched him fly towards the Barn and rest on another fence post and then it took of and disappeared round the barn I don’t think went inside but I didn’t see him again but so pleased get a glimpse.
