Owls tomorrow and that's yer lot for 3 weeks

Just a brief snippet of stuff today.

Firstly, via the blog I thought it may be worth publicising this Afternoon Play, Friday 17th October on Radio 4, The Owls. Why am I advertising the afternoon play? well because it has been produced from the BBC's Natural History Unit.

A fictional story written and narrated by Paul Evans and based on an island legend about a brother and sister who were bound by a wish sworn on a barn owl feather, which in turn became a curse that proved fatal. Recorded on location in Scotland.

Go on, have a listen, I'd be interested in any feedback.

And then again, I'll not be here to read feedback for three weeks. Yes, the Boy Border is finally off to have his Summer Hols. Those of you of sharp mind and quick wit, will notice that summer has passed and we're heading into Winter. Let that not deter me venturing off with my bucket and spade into the gathering darkness.

And so until November 10th (unless I get access to the Internet while away), I shall leave you with this quality photo of Bristol's Eagle Owl, now known as Eddie.

I know it's amazing isn't it, it's all my own work!!!


  1. Love the owl pic :)

    Wherever you're off to, have a fantastic time.

    (and we await the pics on your return :) )

  2. Ha, ha, ha, so funny. Have a wonderful holiday. Looking forward to your return.

  3. Have a good time, and keep the finger on the shutter.
