It ended, more-or-less, with the barn owl

It ended, more-or-less, with the barn owl. Just before 10pm, our majestic neighbour appeared above the adjacent field. L spotted it first, and it took me a few moments to see it too. It swooped across the edge and then turned inwards towards us but veered off to the side too soon and was gone. It was a crowning moment to the day, which had seen the resumption of our weekly Friday swim – this time in the sea at Polkern’s beach.

  1. In my book, observing an owl is always exciting. They’re usually out of sight before your mind registers what just happened. Serves as a good reminder for so much of life, actually — the importance of remaining vigilant. Congratulations, and thanks!
