Parliamentary wisdom

I confess that I had forgotten what one calls a group of owls - it isn't a flock or a flight, but a parliament - something to do with a collection of wisdom, I think that the intention was once!  


However, in my experience, we don't often see a lot of owls together in the Fens - we occasionally see a beautiful barn owl swooping low along the ditches at dusk when we are in the car, and it is a quite spectacular sight so we feel very blessed to see it.

This little gang has just appeared over the past few days - I just finished a couple in the top row tonight, and the EFG has been busy making the wee pals in the bottom row.  One is not a Christmassy one, but still looks great.

I have an idea for a better photograph once I have made a few more, so watch this space - I shall need a few more owls, and a sunny day, so don't hold your breath, given the weather forecast tonight....

I was at school in your neck-of-the-woods (Ely), and there were lots of owls. I'm sure they're in decline; we've even reluctantly kicked one out of our own barn. But I SHALL be building a replacement outdoor nesting box for them.

Those little owls are brilliant, you and your daughter have some good ideas. Your right about the weather forecast - It's Horrible.
