I decided to do a little garden birding today and only after a few minutes of scanning I came across a dark stump like silhouette of something high in the Cedar tree in our front Garden. It was instantly recognisable when I lifted my bins to my eyes to reveal a rufous type Tawny Owl. The excitement of encountering one in our front garden roosting was both amazing and a privilege, hopefully it'll return in future (although having said that it's still present now).
Tawny Owl, what an amazing bird to add to my garden list, easily one of the best
