On Thursday 16th went to Timsbury to help Mike Bailey with the magazine. Following Mike's directions soon found th escaped Eagle Owl, which has been in the village for a week or so.
As I was the only birder on site an HTV southwest crew with David Westwood latched onto me and I found myself being interviewed and featuring on last nights local news.
Unfortunately I missed the dramatic recapture of the bird by falconers. Apparently the bird drew blood pecking its captor's head.
