The Tawny owl seems to have taken up residence in our small 8 acre wood, I hear it calling every day from close by as I walk through the wood.
I am now pleased to have a video of the tawny owl.. the two eyed look into the camera at the end of the video clip is worth waiting for.

A herd of fallow deer with a stag that I have not seen before came to eat the grass yesterday. I normally mow the grass but have left it for the past month to keep/feed the deer for the next month or so.
