Why I was awake at 4am this morning.

As regular readers of this blog will know I live in a lovely quiet little village in Cambridgeshire. We moved here from London a few years ago partly to escape the noise etc. Anyway twice now in the last couple of weeks I have been woken up at 4 am by a racket outside the bedroom window. The culprit, a Tawny owl sitting on the telephone pole outside the window calling to it's mate. Last night was actually worse because it's mate was in the tree opposite, owls in stereo .... wonderful!

Of course whenever I go out around here to try and watch Tawnys in the wild I can never find them. So I am going to start sleeping with my camera next to the bed so I am ready for them next time.
