A Shriek In The Night.



It it not often these days that we hear the shriek of a Barn Owl here in Exmouth. Their population total is down to about 3000 for the whole of Britain. These birds had a disastrous breeding season last year, when a cold, wet spring reduced the rodent supply in their food chain. I was glad to hear one early this morning. A rare scare.
