Two amazing garden ticks.

On Wednesday afternoon as I walked into the garden as if from nowhere a Barn Owl appeared and stayed for quite a while seemingly not bothered by my presence.

Then even more amazingly a Malaysian Brown Wood Owl dropped in as well and it did not seem bothered by my or the Barn Owl's presence.It also stayed around for a while.

Of course I've lied a little but not too much.Both these birds were in the garden but not mine and they were not ticks as they belong to a friend who has raised them and they are tame.

I'd popped along to Meriden again to see if the Waxwings were there (they weren't) and luckily bumped into Glen Delaney who kindly invited me to his home which was just down the road to see his Owls.Here is a shot of Glen and also of a model he had hired from Nuneaton to show the Owl off better.( Hope she didn't charge too much Glen).

A very enjoyable hour in the company of a couple of great birds.Cheers Glen.Here are a few more shots.

You had me going for a minute, Max! Nice shots. Love the "model" from Nuneaton!

Cheers Kevin.If only one would come into the garden.

The "model" makes her living as a Cheryl Cole look alike believe it or not.

I have to admit, I uttered a fair few swear words when I saw the start of this entry... and a few more when I realised I'd been had! You s*d!
