I enjoy the drive home after evening games. Not only is it quiet but I also look out for creatures of the night and in particular, barn owls.
I saw one in flight in flight across the ‘rabbit run’ (the local name for a rural stretch of road) near Badger (a village).
This was my 41st game of the 2022/23 season.
The Barn owl sighting is a rare prize!! Not seen one for a long time.
Lovely birds and I always keep an eye open for them when driving home in the dark.
I’ve had several sightings over the years in that wider general, including one a few weeks back which was perched on a post by the side of the road.
