11th May, Co. Durham
Just like last year, the ultimate birding month finds me stuck in the office with deadlines to meet. At least working late means I'm going home at dusk...saw a pale shape above the hedgerow, no traffic on the road so stopped briefly to watch a barn owl doing that 'suspended in the air a couple of metres from the ground' thing they do when just about to strike. Nice connection with nature after a disconnected day.
