Hi Pete,
We went to Welney a year or so ago and there was a Barn Owl sat on the fence post, right by the side of the approach road to the centre. Probably the same fence post, probably the same bird!...

They get advice.

I've seen more this year (in various locations, including several in my home town) than ever before.
