Dusk

Last night me and Laura went for a short walk from the house just after 9pm. It was really to look for bats, which we saw quite a few of flitting around (I think they were pipistrelles but my bat ID skills leave a lot to be desired).

On the way back we heard a commotion in the trees right by us, and some harsh “ke-wicks!” gave the perpetrators were two tawny owls. We stood and watched the trees for a while, and got a really good view of one flying between two trees, and scaring the bejesus out of the blackbirds and woodpigeons around it. Excellent stuff.
