Twit Twoo,,,,

 You know when there is always something you've wanted to do or see but you're always in the wrong place at the wrong time?
Well one thing I've always wanted to do is to see owls in the wild. I've often seen them at displays but never one in an actual tree or flying... until now that is.
A couple of weeks ago I'd been wandering around the park when I saw a family of Jays. That night I told my friend, who likes photography, that he should go and take some photo's. The next day he came back and said he hadn't managed to get the Jays but he had got the owls!!!!
Owls.... owls..... where, what, owls in my park....... oh yes indeedy..... owls in my park. Notice the plural not one, not two but three owls, a mammy and two babies to be exact.
So the next day after dropping the boys at school I went straight there and spent an hour and a half looking for them and finally with the help of two lady dog walkers we spotted them. The mammy and one baby hiding right in the thickest part of the trees. I tell you I didn't stop smiling all day.

( these photo's belong to my friend)


  1. OHMYGOSH -- you lucky, lucky girl! I've always wanted to see owls in the wild. It's on my bucket list but I haven't been that lucky yet. Maybe I need to come and visit you LOL!

  2. Couldn't be cuter. I've never seen one in the day time. What good luck, and well done for looking until you found them. Juliex

  4. I have never seen owls in the wild either Lisa. I would have been delighted to see them. x

  5. I know we have owls in the woods near us as I hear them at night but I've never seen them, nor jays either for that matter. Excellent photos by your friend.
    Thank you also for visiting my blog!

  6. Wow, what a lovely discovery. I love the picture of the fluffy baby one peeking out. I've never seen owls in the wild either but would really love to - definitely something to smile about for the rest of the day!
