Delights of Walsingham Three

Barn owls wake me up here daily. The one in the back garden (and the garden is about 100 feet by fifty feet) is a barn owl of medium size. It covers the neighbourhood and mostly likely is responsible for the excess amount of pigeon feathers on the ground this morning.

It is not a large barn owl, like the ones I saw in Missouri and Iowa. Those had wingspans of over four feet minimum.

This Norfolk Barn Owl has a wingspan of about three and one-half feet. It may be young.

I just wish it would let me sleep. It seems to like to hoot most of the night.
