Owl spotting

Duncan McDermid lives in Milkwood Park and over the years has tried to make a bird-friendly and mainly indigenous garden. As part of this ongoing project, about four years ago, he made and put up an owl-house in one of his garden trees. Until recently it has been totally ignored. Recently, however, it (or its tree) has been visited by a Spotted Eagle Owl. It has now become a regular visitor to the area.
