    Stunningly beautiful! I can hear owls here almost every night but rarely see them.

    Other birds of prey are out & about during the day but I'm not good at identifying them.

    Deer streaked across the field last night right in front of my dogs--thankfully they were on leads. And today saw a large dog running through the village with a large, dead goose in it's mouth!

    Wildlife--some win, some lose.........
