A big thanks to Superman Duncan for all his help with all those removals he has carried out for people across the region. A brilliant service that will be very greatly missed.
Please be sure to stay in touch and visit us often. Best wishes. Tony & Lynne

Ok well I arrived this week and went to a friends house for a meal and was amazed to see so many fireflies.  I thought it would be too late to see them this year. They are such a beautiful sight

At last!

I've spotted my first firefly of 2018. Just one mind you. As I mentioned before, I always associate seeing them in my area with cantine aperte and that is happening this weekend, so pretty close.  :)

I believe I'm right in saying the Barn Owl is also known as the Screech Owl. The Barn Owl is certainly a thing of beauty.

We have a lot of Little Owls around the house. A couple of years back one flew into our glass balcony door. It was a little stunned, but after 5 or so minutes composted itself and flew off. I did take a couple of photos, which I'll try and find and post.

At my old house I was used to hearing the calls of Scops owls at night but at ny new place the nights are filled with other noises, thereís a tawny owl, a nitinggale and Iíve finally found out whatís been making  quite a different racket, itís a  barn owl! Iíve often seen barn owls both here and in Uk but I donít think Iíve ever heard one before. Very un owl like noise!
