It’s that time of year when the junior owl patrol use my window ledges as take off and landing pads. They leave me with rather spooky ghost prints on my windows where they’ve got it wrong and done a bit of a face plant.
After dark they often perch on the bathroom window ledge and peer myopically through the frosted glass. They are dazzled by the bathroom light and don’t seem to be aware of my presence.
Sometimes they forget how to find their way back home to the tower. One morning I opened the bedroom curtains to find a young owlet asleep on the window sill inside the half open shutter.
