Last night I got home at around 12:30 from a few pints in town, to hear a tawny owl “kee-ick!”ing up the garden either actually in our garden or the one behind. Another was replying some way off. I loitered for a few minutes but didn’t get a glimpse of one.
At around 5am I was woken again by the same noise outside the bedroom window, followed by the alarm calls of suddenly awakened wrens and robins. I blearily wandered to the window and saw the culprit sat on the telegraph pole opposite, in exactly the same position as the one a couple of weeks ago. Worth an early morning wake up call for!
