A little while ago I was given an old birdbath.
I didn't really want it,
it is not a style of garden ornament that I like.
However, because it has owls on it,
and we have Owl Wood,
I decided to accept the gift
to place it discreetly away in Owl Wood.
What can I say?
Except that I am overjoyed that I did.
For many years we have gone to sleep at night
listening to the sound of Tawny Owls
calling to one another.
Not so this last year or so.
The woodland has been upsettingly silent.
since I got two strong men to place the birdbath in Owl Wood
I am happy to say that some magic seems to have happened.
The wonderful sound of Mr and Mrs Tawny Owl
calling to one another
has once again become the soundtrack
I fall asleep to each night.
