I had seen several posts about Mabel the Tawny Owl, but when we visited her tree at the weekend, she was not at home. I returned to the park this afternoon, reckoning that she might be sitting (well, sleeping) out in the sunshine after the stormy nights. And, as you can see, my visit was rewarded.
Mabel produced an owlet in 2012, which you can read about here.
Reg Snook has written a book about her.
This is Mabel's fifth season in the park.
