Guardian owls

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

MY life on a small farm in Suf­folk is rather dom­i­nated by lit­tle owls ( Town & Coun­try, July 20). A year ago, a fox dug out a fam­ily nest in a tree stump, killing both adults. I man­aged to delve into the depths and found five two-day-old owlets. With the help of the Owl Sanc­tu­ary, they sur­vived and re­turned home to me at eight weeks, where they have flour­ished and now raised fam­i­lies of their own. The gardens and woods are alive with the sound of these earnest, di­ur­nal birds. I like to think they know my voice and spend their days watch­ing over the house from var­i­ous stand­points.
