Now all our waking hours are spent watching owlets getting their first view of the great big scary world from the top of this very high scary pole. No fliers yet, just watchers. It keeps going back in to update the other two...’You’ll NEVER guess what....’ @barnowltrust #barnowl #owlet
Now, I don’t want everyone getting over excited because we of course are VERY CALM...first owlet peeks out of the box about 5 minutes ago... @barnowltrust #barnowls
We are all very sad that that the Gamekeeper’s (youngest son’s) best dog Finn had to shuffle off his mortal collar this week. An intuitive & faithful dog who only ever wanted to sit in the front seat & be alongside him & work. Lots of tears & flowers & hugs all round, but Finn will be a happy lad wherever he is running now.
It would still be an amazing feat in 2019 so what sort of a miracle was the moon landing in 1969? Now remembering the nightmares we all had about them getting stuck there. And then there was the drama & silence of the astronauts being out of comms on the ‘dark side of the moon’. It would be announced with a very solemn voice & we’d all hold our breath. What an exciting time it was to be fifteen. #apollo11 #moonlanding
